ANALOG: Animal Puzzles
I made fifteen wooden animal farm puzzles for our student-run BYU design student shop called Curio. This is an original design created in Adobe Illustrator, laser-printed onto 3/4" birch plywood, hand-cut on a scroll saw, hand-sanded, and hand-stained. Yes, my hands are very tired after this project. It was so fun to learn a new process.
