Ornate 3D Jigsaw Puzzle Converts into a Functional Lamp Once Assembled

Jigsaw puzzles are a lot of fun, but there always comes a point when you have to disassemble all of your hard work. However, this isn't the case with Marcus Williams‘ exquisite 3D puzzle. Once it's complete, it's a functional object! The kit converts into a lamp that resembles an ornate Gothic-style cathedral complete with Flying Buttresses.

Williams' challenging activity features over 120 laser-cut wood pieces that lock together and form a sculptural work of art. There's very little glue required, but he does recommend some adhesive as it will “stabilize the lamp for daily use.” A light socket and cord are included to help jigsaw masters transition the completed structure from a mere puzzle into a unique home decor piece.

Williams sells this kit in his Etsy shop, 1Man1Garage.
