A Weymouth craftsman's record breaking puzzle attempt to go on display at the Queens Royal holiday home.

Dave Evans, who is creating the massive puzzle, asked people from around the area to send him images of how they celebrated the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. So, the jigsaw will contain both local and more official images.

The finished jigsaw will have 40,000 pieces, and will be displayed at the Queen's residence in Sandringham.

The two Guinness World Records he hopes to conquer are the Largest Commercial Jigsaw and the Largest Hand-Cut Wooden Jigsaw.

He expects to be cutting for 200+ hours, which will be streamed live via the internet. However, he also welcomes the public to come and watch him as he will be cutting his wooden puzzle, measuring 19 X 8 feet, in public at Brewers Quay, Weymouth.

He aims to start within a week (of 13th March) and will be busy through the summer.

Sponsoring Dave's efforts are local companies Axminster Tools and Voltz Energy Shots, who he says, will both be empowering him but in varying forms. He has sourced most of his materials locally and is working with local people to achieve his target.
