Steve & Dave = Stave Puzzles

A billion years ago (1974), Dave Tibbetts and I started Stave Puzzles. We mushed Stave and Dave together to make Stave and because one of the definitions of 'stave' is to "break to pieces" we thought it was a natural to use 'stave as our puzzle company name, Stave Puzzles. After a couple of years Dave got bored and said he'd rather be fishing and painting, so I bought him out for a dollar and a saw. He continued to design our catalogs for many years. Over the years we have maintained our friendship and last year we started offering some of Dave's fly fishing scenes as puzzles. Last week Dave had a showing of his wonderful artwork at a local gallery. There we are below holding the two watercolors I purchased.
