They come with no image to match. They do not have uniform borders. Not all pieces are contiguous.

Stave Lobster puzzle

This is the one we worked on while we were in Maine. These cherry-backed wooden jigsaw puzzles promise to “challenge, amaze, entertain and, yes, sometimes torment you.” All the pieces are made one at a time which goes a long way to explaining the six-to-eight week delivery and the heart-stopping cost.

Should I ever find myself with a spare $5oo or so of the euphemistically-named “disposable income” then I really want to get a couple of these. Meanwhile, I have joined the puzzle game community where if I get the highest score within a month of matching the piece game, I get one of the puzzles FREE.
