When I saw the original $5 price tag on the the box for this puzzle, I could not believe it. It would take me two days to cut a puzzle this size. The fact that someone could buy the wood and picture, glue them together, spend the time needed to cut over 500 pieces and still make a profit after selling it for $5, is amazing. On top of all that, the cutter, who did an excellent job of color cutting, might have been someone's employee.
