{Process and Materials}

Meticulously crafted out of locally sourced wood, each letter is individually traced on the wood to ensure the letters are the strongest they can be. After the tracing has been done, each letter is cut out by scroll saw then sanded twice, once by machine and then again by hand to ensure there are no sharp edges or corners. The puzzle base plate is made by handheld power router and sanded in the same method as the letters. We use traditional woodworking methods without computer aided machines for our name puzzles which makes it a true handcrafted artisan made puzzle.

When you purchase your listing, we will send a computerized mock-up of your puzzle with the colours that you have picked out. This is the stage where colours need to be decided on. When you approve the computerized mock-up of the name puzzle you ordered, your puzzle letters will be painted this way. We send one last photo of your painted puzzle for final approval. If after it has been painted you want a colour change, there will be an additional fee per letter to cut and sand a new letter replacement. Please ensure your Etsy convo notifications are turned on so that we can communicate in timely fashion.

MDH Toys custom name puzzles letters are painted in our studio with certified non-toxic water based paint and finished in certified non-toxic gloss. The puzzle base is finished in your choice of finish from the dropdown menu. A timeless favorite, these heirloom quality educational learning tools can be passed down from generation to generation if properly cared for.


• approx 3/4 inch thickness of back plate
• approx 3/4 inch thickness of letters
• Letters are easy to grasp at an approx 2.5 inch height and are raised 0.5 inches above plate height.
• Letters have been traced on the wood to ensure that they are the strongest they can be, so wood grain direction will vary. This is because wood cracks along the grain and the weakest point on letters are the thinnest parts.
• Fully painted all exposed sides and edges of letters with a protective layer of gloss coat on letters to prevent chipping of colours
• Choice of approx 30 colours per each letter
