This jigsaw puzzle is harder than it looks, I'm not sure if I managed to get anything together correctly when I spent a few minutes on it, maybe it's a good coffee table piece to completely freak out your friends (as in.. it "looks" like it's going to go together easy but it doesn't) - I'll let you know if I can get my kids to figure it out. You can see the wood grain so there's a bit of help! 12 pieces in total. These flea market items are pieces I find at local Estate Sales in the Rhode Island area, I seek out pieces of beauty which are usually not perfect but always in good condition (unless otherwise stated). I am pretty sure these are handmade as they are from a home which had a large woodworking studio.
