Wooden Puzzle Set

Personal project

Over the past year of the pandemic I have gotten into woodworking and joined a wood-workshop as a way to broaden my skillset.

I have always been very interesting in Toy & Packaging Design and wanted to find a way to combine these into one handmade, sustainable product: This is how The Dolfing Box was born.

A 3-part toy that is both a wooden toy block set, a puzzle, and a framed art piece all in one!


I have designed, cut, painted and build the entire thing by hand, and I'm incredibly proud of how far I've come as a first-time-woodworker! I spend several months designing, drawing, planning and eventually sawing my wooden toy puzzle design. Determined to learn as many different techniques as possible, I also created a self-contained frame that doubled as the box/packaging for the puzzle, learning to drill, sand, paint, and engrave the wood.

Work in Progress

Through these work in progress photos you can see the full project in development from start to finish.

 
 

I'd love to put this puzzle toy design on store shelves and be able to sell it and offer it to a wider public... so if you are a toy manufacturers/ distributors... please get in touch! (Product pitch document available upon request.)
