Fool's Gold Fine Wooden Jigsaw Puzzles


Fool's Gold has created more than 2000 custom wooden jigsaw puzzles since its founding
in 1997. Here's another example below of what we can do. The puzzle, titled "Cat in the Shadows," highlights an irregular edge along the top incorporating several cat and mice figural pieces. This border makes for a more interesting and challenging puzzle (as no
final picture of the puzzle is included for the assembler).

It’s only a matter of time!

Maybe it’ll happen when you slide apart the beautifully crafted black box, or when you first cast your eyes on the shiny golden pouch tucked inside. Or, as you untie the braided cord, you peak inside and then watch as puzzle pieces tumble and spill out onto your tabletop. Hmmm... anyone watching? You look around, pick up the first piece and start searching for its mate. Ah... success! You’re on a mission. Dinner’s going to have to wait.


Speed to the West!

In this train puzzle (shot on a gray background), five separate puzzle pieces were crafted to actually connect with each other to form a circus train comprised of the engine, a giraffe, elephant, gorilla, and a chimpanzee!

In the train puzzle photo above you can see the various "missing pieces" (look for the internal gray areas). At right, these same pieces connect to form the circus train!

Discover the Fool's Gold difference: Why all wooden jigsaw puzzles
are not created equal.

In a class of its own, Fool’s Gold uses and prefers the look and feel of solid wood for its puzzles (versus a less expensive plywood). Each puzzle is crafted from a special blend of 1/4 inch solid basswood, backed with a double-thickness layer of beautiful striped mahogany. The end result, a more luxurious appearance!

Fool's Gold uses special archival inks and enhanced matte paper to ensure your puzzles will last a long time. These ultra-fine inks are life- and lightfastness rated up to 200 years by the manufacturer, and provide vivid high-image quality output.

You’ll also discover each Fool’s Gold puzzle is truly unique. Every piece is patiently cut with the finest jigsaw blade available, a mere .007" thin, no wider than a whisker. The end result, a fine heirloom-quality jigsaw puzzle you and your family will enjoy today and for generations to come!

Discover the Fool's Gold difference: The finishing touch.

After a puzzle is cut, the double-thick mahogany back surface is hand-sanded, and
then carefully hand-oiled, -waxed, and -polished, bringing out the beauty and grain of the wood.

The finished product is fully inspected, the puzzle is taken apart, pieces are counted
and recorded, and then safely packed inside a liquid gold lamé pouch (not inexpensive tissue paper like our competitors). All Fool's Gold puzzles are initialed by the cutter and dated (on the signature "fool" puzzle piece). The final touch...the puzzle is carefully fitted into a beautiful crafted black box ready to be delivered to your door.
