We are a small home based business.  Each puzzle is a family affair.  Mom picks the image and mounts it to the wood.  Dad stains and cuts the puzzle.  Our oldest boy does final sanding and piece count while our oldest daughter does the packing and shipping.  Our youngest girl (2 yrs old) is responsible for looking cute and distracting daddy!

We left Long Island, NY about 5 years ago and said goodbye to the rat race for good.  We are now converting 7 acres in upstate NY into a gentelman farm (I hate the word homesteading - just reminds me of a scene from Grapes of Wrath). 

One of the many questions I recieve from friends and family is "Why puzzles?"
I have alway loved working with wood.  As a young boy I had a small lath as well as a wood burning set so I guess the die was set long ago.  I spent many years as a salesman and I am good with people and social situations but there is something true and straight forward about working with wood.  There is, at least for me, a touch of Zen in what I do.  It is the same feeling I get when tending my garden on a warm spring day.  I never feel like weeding is "work".  If you are an avid gardener then you know what I mean.  I consider myself very fortunate to be able to support my family doing what I love to do.
