Some people REALLY love jigsaw puzzles.

Stave Puzzles is a “maker of fine custom wooden jigsaw puzzles since 1974.” They have funky features like blank spaces where nothing fits, or pieces that can fit in multiple places, which make them a favorite of “serious puzzlers.” They’re cut out with an actual saw instead of a laser (Why?). Also, you can have them customize your puzzles with special shapes like the recipient’s name and a cat-shaped piece, or an inscription on the back. (drum roll) And what does one cost?

$506 for a 75-piece, 5″ x 7″ puzzle with no customizations.

That’s right, you heard me. On the upper end, you can get that same design as a

1000-piece wooden jigsaw puzzle measuring 25″ x 20″ for only $5995.

My favorite customer testimonial?

We cannot wait to get back into our house to work on these puzzles! We even added a Stave Puzzle closet! Just for our special puzzles! —G.G.W., Shapleigh, ME

Now, to be fair, there are four simple six-inch puzzles priced at only $125 each. That’s one above. They’ll write someone’s name on it for you.

Clearly I just don’t get it.
