Whether you're a puzzle fanatic or not, there is no doubt that you should try putting together a high quality wooden puzzle at least once in your life. In fact, most wooden puzzle fans will tell you that once you go wooden, you'll never go back. They may be more expensive, but the experience is far more rewarding.

Choosing Quality Jigsaw Puzzles

There are two main concerns anyone has when buying a puzzle. The first is the subject of the puzzle: you always want to buy something with a picture that you're going to enjoy looking at and trying to piece together. The second is the level of difficulty of the puzzle itself. While the number of pieces is usually a good way to determine how hard the puzzle is going to be, there are still other factors to consider.

The recent resurgence of wooden puzzles has taught a lot of puzzlers about the difference between handcrafted wooden puzzles and run-of-the-mill cardboard puzzles. Cardboard puzzles are usually made with the exact cutting die, so you may get two different puzzles cut into exactly the same pattern. Wooden puzzles, on the other hand, are made with quite a bit more care.

When wooden puzzle makers design their puzzles, they do so on an individual basis. This means that they sit down and design the cuts in the puzzle sometimes even according to the picture on the puzzle itself. The level of thought put into these puzzles is directly intended to make the game of putting the puzzle back together more difficult--and more enjoyable.
