    I feel you’re pain dog ….about the band saw I mean.I finally put mine in the corner and only use it if I absolutly have to.I have found that unless you need a really thin kerf as is the case with you’re puzzel. A hand held jig saw works really well you just have to go slow. I’m going to try to build one of those puzzels and see if I can get mind to work that well.You do such fine work my stuff really lacks in that department I not givin up though.

    You could stand them up on end/edge on your crosscut boat. Then you don’t have to do stopped cuts and worry about the round kerf. You may be able to set a stop at 3 units from the blade and use other pieces as spacers, too. That would get all of your cuts from one setting. The only limitation is how high you can raise your blade. As long as it makes it 2 units, you’re all set.

    Cool project!

    A slightly different version, from a french blog.
    This one is made of 8 pieces, some are smaller, off course !

    Then, to add some difficult, magnets are inserted inside some faces, to have only one solution.
