TREVOR - WOOD = HANDCRAFTED/PUZZLES
WHEN + YOU - WANT - NOT + JUST - A - PUZZLE/BUT = ALSO + A - WORK x OF/ART

Same letters are same digits, different letters may be the same digit.

T.W. Puzzles arrived on the scene in 1984 by pure accident . But why the name T.W. Puzzles? Quite simply it stems from the logo I placed on the bonnet (hood) of the toy cars that I made, and I couldn't come up with any other name (see About TW). I still use the same forged metal stamp on my puzzles, usually on the base of the boxes. Recently my friend Edward Hordern and I were discussing nicknames and I mentioned that at school I was called Woody he immediately said "then you should trade as Woody Wood Puzzles". Why hadn't I thought of it! Edward doesn't think it is too late to change the name; but I beg to differ and will stick to T.W. Puzzles. (I've gotten used to typing it!)
All my puzzles are hand crafted to order. Generally I work on one puzzle at a time, though I may have up to three or four puzzles at various stages of construction on my bench, and each could be a different puzzle. Highly inefficient and uneconomic....yes, I know. Many people have criticised my way of working, and my fellow craftsmen have offered me advise on how to become more efficient and thus increase my output. But true to my Yorkshire trait I stubbornly persist in doing it my way! My annual production is very low and I never hold any puzzles in stock.
STOP FOR IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!
My grateful thanks to the many puzzle designers/enthusiasts who have afforded me the privilage of interpreting and hand crafting their ideas, for no reward other than the possession of a TW version.

From 1984 to 1990 I made puzzles on a part-time basis. During that time I would return home at 8am after 12 hours working the night shift at our local hospital, have breakfast, then go to bed. I would rise mid afternoon and spend 3 -4 hours making puzzles before starting my next shift at 8pm. more to follow
