Zodiac is a limited series of wooden astrological puzzles. I take great pride in making the highest-quality custom puzzles. They are carefully handcrafted using a scroll saw.

They are made out of Maple wood. It's my favorite wood to work with. It has a smooth finish. 

The wood grain pattern makes each and every puzzle truly unique, so each person who receives one is getting a special puzzle just for them.

They can be displayed on a table or shelf with no additional backing or support.

I've been hand cutting meticulously these puzzle one piece at the time. They are finished and protected with a Narural Oil Finish.

This is another reason why these puzzles are extraordinary - absolutely one of a kind. They are custom made for each pledge.

I'm asking for your help to fund a bulk order of materials (wood, finishing oils, cutting blades, etc) as well as to help me get my hands on some new tools and equipment that will make the construction and assembly smoother, so I can spend more time designing new puzzles.

I'm really excited to get this campaign going on Kickstarter. I've talked to a lot of people throughout the development, production and sale of these items, and the feedback has been very supportive.

Throughout this process, I realized that most people know their Sun Sign, which can be easily found from the date of birth (See below). They also wanted to learn more about their Rising Sign and their Astrology birth chart.

The Rising Sign (or Ascendant) is the face that you show to the world.

It influences your outward personality and directs the first impressions that others form about you.

Your style, friendships and physical appearance are also influenced by the Rising Sign, from the clothes you choose to the people you click with.

Early birds will receive their Astrology birth chart with its interpretation and my eternal gratitude.

Thanks so much for helping me make this happen!

Risks and challenges

I have been woodworking and practicing cutting puzzles on my scroll saw for quite some time. There are minimal risks to project accomplishment since I am already crafting these puzzles.

Because each wood has its own grain pattern and color, the puzzles will not look identical to the ones in the pictures above. The shapes, shades and sizes may slightly vary. This is also what makes them truly unique and awesome!

Now, my biggest challenge would be to deliver an exceptional product as fast as possible. These funds will be a big part of solving that problem and I plan to purchase new equipment that will help me speed up the process so I can spend more time designing new puzzles.

Thank you for spreading the word.
