World Record Puzzle

Dave Evans from Weymouth carved a massive 40,000 piece jigsaw puzzle in April 2013. It was the largest hand-cut puzzle ever made. Unfortunately it collapsed after Dave spent five weeks creating the puzzle

But when the 40,000-piece puzzle he had been working on for weeks collapsed on to the floor, Dave Evens was in bits. The master craftsman had just placed the last piece into the world’s biggest hand-cut wooden jigsaw, which he had created from a montage of photos of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.


Mr Evens had spent more than 200 hours hand-cutting the jigsaw from 6mm plywood before it collapsed.  Luckily Mr Evans had already measured, photographed and filmed his jigsaw for his Guinness World of Records submission.
