Tangrams are an enteraining toy to put on your coffee table. It's one of
those things people can't help but play with.
If you search the internet you can find all kinds of tangram puzzles - usually
animals. I made mine from scraps of plywood I had and finished it with
semi-gloss Deft lacquer. The finish was rubbed with 0000 steel wool after
it had dried for several days.
One thing I
had planned to make but haven't gotten around to is a fitted box with a glass
cover to store it in. You might see that here one day.
