Product Description

Product Description

Some would call it organised chaos. Old tins of paint that were last used years ago, rusty tins of screws and nails, bottles of varnish, and pots of dried up putty are kept just in case. This Aladdin’s cave, with its own special smells, wood shavings and cobwebs is dad’s haven. Regrettably this wonderful image is tinged with sadness, because this is Michael Herring’s very last painting to be published as a Gibsons jigsaw. Michael Herring passed away in August 2010 and his unique style of painting will be missed by all those who have enjoyed his pictures and puzzles over many years.

    There is no grandfather who does not adore his grandaughter. This love is reciprocated and is reflected in this young girl's description of her grandad "he was a giant of a man....when he walked the earth shook. When he laughed the birds fell out of the sky. His hair caught fire from the sun. His eyes were patches of sky". And so this sentiment is graphically captured in Gibsons "Grandad's Workshop" Jigsaw Puzzle.

    In the very careful and observant depiction of a cluttered garden shed assembled lovingly over many years to fulfil the multi-purpose role of garden and tool storage, a household items repair depot, and a haven from which to avoid full compliance with mundane domestic duties and Women's Institute Coffee mornings, you are presented with the endearing image of a grandfather giving his grandaughter a lovingly newly made or renovated doll's house.

    One of life's great mysteries is how the boy who wasn't good enough to marry this man's daughter, can possibly be the father of the smartest and prettiest grandchild in the whole world?

    A brilliant jigsaw that will retain your optimum interest throughout it's reconstruction, the only disappointment being when there are no further pieces to fit together.

    Interesting picture - very nostalgic for an old buffer like me that's got 6 grandkids!

    Difficult enough to take some time but not too difficult to get fed up of.

    Good quality board & cutting.

    I recently had two cataract operations and cannot see close up .Gibson's jigsaws are ideal for me as
    Each piece has part of the next one on it.so they follow on. A blue sky. sand, trees etc. are difficult for me .Any one with a sight problem would be well recommended to buy a Gibson's puzzle. The thickness of the backing is also perfect, some other makes use a thin almost paper backing which can peel or split. It is not worth buying a cheaper puzzle, please don't. Gibsons deserve you support for making such a good range which is so well made.

    Every year it is tradition to buy my grandad a jigsaw for Christmas. It has started to become challenging as he must now have every single one. Until I came across this one on Amazon! Perfect! And what's more grandad has a workshop just like this which I used to play in. The detail is amazing and I know it will be a challenge for him to complete so won't finish it in a few days-a good sign of keeping him busy.

    Perfect! Delivery was good! Super excited to see his face when he gets it!
