Our shop started in 2003 in Spring Hill, FL by Dave Janelle who was looking for a way to make a living designing and making brain teaser puzzles after a career as an engineer and Operations manager. The business started in the garage, but later moved to a small shop in nearby County Line Industrial park as the business slowly grew. In 2011 son Phil joined the company and has expanded the business, creating items used in escape rooms.

The wood-shop is about 6000 square feet with a broad mix of traditional equipment supplemented by high power laser equipment and CNC machines. Many of our products we designed to use a mix of skills and equipment, requiring both traditional custom woodworking and hi-tech graphics art converted to something that can be made with laser machines. Our product mix contains over 400 items with 150+ original designs.  We also have resurrected items, such as Napier’s Bones and Stomachion which are rarely seen.

We work with educators at all levels, from pre-K to University and many homeschooling families as well. We support museums and occasionally will make custom pieces for hands-on displays for them. We believe in the value of our puzzles which assist in promoting focus, determination, and problem solving skills. Through puzzles this can be achieved in not only a beneficial, but fun manner for all ages.
