The Wooden Castle Puzzle

Building & assembling the frame
Following the details in figure 2 and the Bill of Materials, make the main frame (C,D) from 3/4” x 1” cherry stock. Sand the main frame pieces and stain with the same cherry stain used on the puzzle pieces. Finish with a coat of urethane.

Glue the backing board (A)/cutout board (B) assembly to the main frame (C,D) components. As an added touch, use 1/4” x 14” strips of pine cut to proper lengths (See Bill of Materials) to create a mat frame (E,F). Sand with 220-grit sandpaper and glue into position.

Once all the glue has dried, apply a final coat of urethane over the entire assembly.

Finally, you’ll want to make a simple, unusually-shaped stand (G) from 1/4” plywood (See Fig. 2 for details.).
