Fishing Boat Puzzle

  • My Image

    The design of this beech wood fishing boat containing 12 acrylic painted beechwood fish and a wooden fisherman is derived from a piece I made in the 1980s that was exhibited in the Musee des Arts Decoratif in the Louvre in Paris, being acquired for their Le Jouet de Bois exhibition, winter 1987. This boat is smaller than the original that was designed as a children's puzzle.

    The wood is cut from 1.5 inch thick planks of beech 8 feet long and a foot wide. The 12 different sized fish are cut separately from the decks but fit perfectly into each section. The fisherman is carved from American cherry wood in 2 halves that are glued together to increase strength.
