The Scent of a Wooden Nautilus Puzzles puzzle

Have you ever opened a brand new wooden jigsaw puzzle and noticed a distinct, toasty aroma? That's coming from the wood!

Our wooden jigsaw puzzles are laser cut. The bright beam of the laser cuts a tiny path through the wood to form the edges of each special shaped piece. This allows us to design dozens of intricate whimsy pieces for each puzzle!

Nautilus puzzles are made without harmful chemicals. We use formaldehyde-free birch/bass plywood, archival paper, and soy-based inks and adhesives. Like the smell of a summer campfire, the scent of the laser burning through the wood lingers for a few days before fading.

If you receive a freshly cut wooden jigsaw puzzle that still has a strong scent, we suggest laying out the puzzle pieces on a large cookie sheet to air out. After 24 hours you should be able to enjoy the durability of the wooden pieces, which make your heirloom-quality puzzle a pastime you can enjoy and share over and over again.

Happy puzzling and be advised: These puzzles may be habit-forming!

Thank you for posting this. I enjoy jigsaws, but because I am highly sensitive to chemicals, I can’t buy new ones any more. They just take TOO LONG to outgas. Based on the above, I am going to try one of your minis.

Wonderful to put together. A good challenge for adults to improve their visual perception. I love them. I have given a few away to family and friends, they love them. Yes it is true they are habit forming. Nice to see a finish puzzle. Well packed. Smell is soothing. Excited when I receive my new challenge in the mail.
Thank you. Nautilus.

I absolutely love the laser cut puzzles offered by Nautilus. Of course some are more difficult than others but the feeling of satisfaction when I complete a puzzle is worth the work and struggle . The laser cuts are distinct, clear and precise. The art work is clever, cute at times and very professional. Nautilus offers an outstanding product that’s well worth the price. I too have given away some of my puzzles finding the recipient very appreciative.
