Irregular edge puzzles


I make some of my wooden jigsaw puzzles with very intricate outer borders.  Goodbye straight edge squares and rectangle jigsaw puzzles.

Hello to the world if incredible unpredictable edges that range from mild (Pretzel puzzle) to the ultimate extreme puzzles (Butterfly heart puzzle).

My custom made puzzles cutting skills have over 25,000 hours of scroll saw cutting experience.  At this point in my career I can pretty much cut anything you need hand crafted.

About Mark Cappitella

Custom Jigsaw Puzzle Maker, Mark

I have been making custom wooden jigsaw puzzles for adults and children, for over two decades.  Having hand cut my first puzzle on June 28, 1995, I have made over 10,200 individually hand cut wood jigsaw puzzles to date.

I have a tremendous knowledge about the process of making custom made puzzles, and can help you and or your company or organization, to create the most fitting wooden puzzle for your very specific needs.

I was born in New York City, but spent most of my childhood in Northern New Jersey.  I served in the US Marine Corps from 1985 until 1989 serving mostly in Southern CA, and South East Asia, after which I remained in California, and returned to college, while working full-time.  I relocated back to New Jersey in late 1993, where I married and started a family.  Now a father of 5 children ages 16-24, 

I relocated to central southern Connecticut in January, 1999, originally in Chester, and then in late 99', East Haddam, located on the East bank of the beautiful Connecticut River. I became single again in 2011, and still enjoy ample time with my three youngest children.  Kelly, Christopher and Emily.
