Assembly

I normally do a thorough sort on a 1000 piece puzzle but this one is 2000 pieces which would take upwards to 4 foam boards or more.

Instead, the sorting was resorted to similar colors as I moved along different areas of the image. As you can see below the similar browns/blacks have been gathered.

I didn't even get the border done first this time. I started with piles of colors and placing pieces together. The kittens seemed most outstanding on the green bench along with the red flowers.

Basically what happened after that was sorting the colors according to the items in the image....so things like the radio, tools, seed packets were fairly easy to identify.

The blue window frame with the outdoor details were a little tricky too but the most testy areas were the brown shelves.

Comments

The following images share some nice close up details such as the oil can and butterfly for instance. The artwork by Steve Read is impeccable with no brush strokes which makes for a VERY delightful experience.

I highly recommend trying the Buffalo Games Grandpa's Potting Shed by Steve Read and 2000 pieces jigsaw puzzle. 

The above jigsaw puzzle(s) have been added to my Puzzle Hobby Tracker 

I am in the process of recording all my past jigsaw puzzles that I still have for my walls and all my current puzzles.

Then I have the TO DO list that I am adding from my collection.
