Phil designed this puzzle in the mid-80s and it has been a customer favorite ever since. Each one is cut and made by hand. The cats have quite a lot of personality.

He cuts it by hand on his band saw. Then sands each piece, finishing it in our proprietary blend of oils and waxes. The patina develops beautifully with age.

It is signed and dated.

It is a great gift for the cat person on your list at Christmas and is often used as well as nursery decor.
