3D wooden puzzles have become not only a popular hobby, but also a way to decorate home interiors. In order for the puzzles to last a long time and please the eye, it is important to properly approach both their assembly and storage.

Tips for assembling 3D wooden puzzles

When assembling 3D puzzles for adults, it is important to follow certain guidelines to make the process enjoyable and the result impressive:

  1. Choosing a place for assembly. It is necessary to find a spacious and well-lit surface to conveniently arrange all the elements of the puzzle. A large table is ideal, where you can distribute the parts and see the overall picture.
  2. Checking the equipment. Before starting the process, you should check that all the elements are in place according to the instructions. This will prevent unpleasant surprises during the process.
  3. Assembly Plan. Start assembling from the base or key structural elements. This will help create a stable foundation for further work.
  4. Careful joining of parts. When joining parts, it is important to avoid excessive pressure to avoid damaging them. If the parts do not fit together easily, check that you are joining them correctly.
  5. Referring to the instructions when you have difficulties: If you have difficulties with how to connect the elements, it is always a good idea to refer back to the instructions.
  6. Pauses in your work. If assembly seems difficult or tedious, take short breaks. This will help reduce stress levels and help you look at the process from a new perspective.
  7. Taking pictures of the process. Take pictures of the assembly steps, especially if you plan to disassemble the puzzle in the future. This will help to reconstruct the sequence.

Tips for storing assembled 3D wooden puzzles

Once the 3D wooden puzzle is assembled, it is important to ensure that it is stored properly to maintain its appearance and longevity:

  • Avoid extreme temperature conditions;
  • protect from sunlight;
  • choose a suitable place for large jigsaw puzzles.

Store puzzles in a place where they will not be exposed to extreme temperatures or humidity. Direct sunlight can also damage the wood, causing it to fade and warp. Therefore, it is better to choose dark or dimly lit places for storage.

Large puzzles can be conveniently stored on specialized stands or in showcases to serve as a decorative element at the same time. Smaller models can be placed in closed cabinets or on shelves to protect them from dust and damage. At the same time, it is important to regularly wipe the puzzles from dust with a soft, dry cloth, avoiding the use of wet wipes or aggressive cleaning agents that can harm the wood.

By following these tips, you will be able to enjoy the beauty and integrity of your 3D wooden puzzle for years to come.
