The puzzle was completed on 24th April 2013 and consists of 33 images and over 40,000 pieces. The images are primarily pictures taken by members of the public at various festivals, events and street parties commemorating our most gracious Majesty the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. The puzzle will go on display at Sandringham Estate in may.
Dave Evans was professionally trained to hand cut wooden jigsaw puzzles at the world renowned Victory jigsaw manufacturers.
The preparation and cutting of the jigsaw puzzle, taken place at Brewers Quay in Weymouth, and took 35 days to complete. Dave used an Excalibur EX-30 scroll supplied by Axminster Tool Centre and manufactured by General International.
This incredible attempt could not have been made without the very kind generosity and support of my sponsors, Axminster Tool Centre & Voltz Energy Shots. I would also like to thank Leo (Dave) and Lisa Balk of Seattle, U.S. for their support, help and encouragement.
Over 500 hours of video is currently being processed and prepared for Guinness World Records.
After this jigsaw has been displayed at Sandringham Estate the puzzle will be auctioned off to raise money for Help for Heroes. Help for Heroes co-founders said "We are delighted to accept such a unique and record-breaking donation."
If you like the way I cut and would like to learn more why not have a look at my DVD "Cutting the Victory Way".
The puzzle will soon go on display at Sandringham Palace. My next project will be to create a limited edition 1000 piece A1 jigsaw with a DVD of the record attempt. This will be limited to just 100 puzzles! They will be sold on a 1st come basis so please let me know if you are interested as soon as possible.
