Bob spends most of his time collecting and restoring
puzzles as close to their original beauty as can be done.
His collection numbers over 1000 puzzles, mostly plywood
cut in the United States during the first half of this
century, but he also has solid-wood puzzles from the 19th
century, and miscellaneous wood and cardboard puzzles
from other eras and places.
Beautiful, interesting and challenging handcut jigsaw
puzzles to tickle the fancy of true puzzlers. Each Puzzle

special messages) plus others in the shapes of animals,
birds, flowers and figures. In addition, there is a club
called PUZZLERS where members can rent an ELMS puzzle at
any time at a fraction of the purchase price.
