This is the one hundred and third puzzle that appears in Professor Layton and the Curious Village. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Gordon. In order to solve this puzzle, you must cut the wood into four identical pieces, making sure no piece is a mirrored version.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    This puzzle would be a lot easier if you were allowed to use mirror versions of the shape as well. Since you can't, though, here's a hint to get you started on the right track.

    Don't start off by dividing the wood into two pieces straight through the middle.

Hint Two
    Have you ever seen a standard office staple? Well, that's the shape you are looking to cut out here, except it'll be a bit longer in the middle than your standard staple.

Hint Three
    The board is shaped like a large H.

    First, cut a staple-shaped piece out of both of the vertical lines that make up the sides of the H. Then, draw a line through the middle of the horizontal line that remains to separate the last two pieces.

[edit] When Failed

Give it another try!

This puzzle would be a piece of cake if you could use mirrored versions of the shape, but you'll just have to try and solve it as is.

[edit] When Completed

That's right!

Once you got the shape of the pieces, it wasn't so difficult. But it wasn't all that easy to find them within the wood, was it?

[edit] Solution


Cut the wood as shown.

2115 Picarats and 117 Hint Coins.
