Wentworth Christmas Puzzle Assembly

The unique cuts were quite different to handle because they were wood.....it was like the pieces had to be set in from directly above and not slide into place from the sides.

I was unable to complete the border first as the dark brown areas along the top were tricky due to the cuts. When whimsy pieces are included in the cut, the border edge pieces tend to blend in as edge pieces that are actually part of a whimsy cut area making it  difficult to determine the correct piece. So I decided to let the pieces find themselves eventually by assembling towards the border on it own.

The image was so fun to work especially the Christmas tree and Santa. I did think it was a tad dark but it doesn't look as dark as the above image.

The wood is from the forests managed on a sustainable yield basis. I would say they are about 1/4 of an inch. They were quite solid. This was taken into consideration when getting the frame.

Wentworth Christmas Puzzle Comments

I received this as a gift in 2015 from a friend in the UK. She had completed it herself and she knew from my social media comments that I really really REALLY wanted a Wentworth Christmas puzzle.  Since these are not easily available in Canada she was very thoughtful to send me  hers.....so you can imagine how thrilled, excited and delighted I was. 

I also had the pleasure of locating this Wentworth Zebra Stallion and Mare wooden jigsaw puzzle

I have to admit I have not taken it down since 2015 and now the Christmas season is almost upon us so I will not be switching it up. You can also pick the entire puzzle up, turn it over and see some of the Whimsy cuts on the back. 

If you have an opportunity to buy or try one of these Wentworth jigsaw puzzles I highly recommend the experience.
