Needs to be larger
on 5 April 2014
The vast majority of European 1000 jigsaws will SQUEEZE onto this board, but life would be so much easier with an extra inch around the sides.
The front fabric holds the pieces well, whist also allowing you to slide them. I'm not a fan of the blue colour, but to be fair it does provide high contrast so that you can see you pieces very well against it. I also like the way the edge of the board tapers gently up, so that you can slide pieces off.
The rear is slightly padded and covered with a different leatherette fabric.
The board is surprisingly lightweight, yet sturdy enough to be held at one end. I do worry that it might warp over time.
The finishing is immaculate.
The price I think is very fair and I would have given 5 stars had it not been for the size. With the slightly larger Jigthings Jigsort 1000 costing nearly twice as much, surely there is scope for more of a compromise.
