On Monday, I started a new puzzle, Neuschwanstein Castle in Winter, a 1000 piece puzzle by Eurographics. Since I get questions on how I work puzzles, I explained and showed how I approach starting a puzzle.
But in that video, I only got as far as separating all the pieces with the border pieces ready to be put together. I didn’t explain how I work each puzzle section. And I promised to show the finished puzzle.
Well, I finished the puzzle today. But instead of just showing a photo of the completed puzzle, I decided to continue the video to show the various stages of my puzzle progress. From completing the border to putting in the last piece.
And that’s my general approach to putting a puzzle together!
This is a medium challenge puzzle. The lower sides were the parts I thought would be the most challenging but it surprisingly wasn’t as difficult as I first thought. While I don’t time myself, I’d estimate this puzzle took between 6 and 8 hours to complete, including the hour or so that it took to separate all the pieces.
The finished puzzle is quite lovely and it definitely makes me want to see Neuschwanstein in the winter.
