Sydney, Australia-based puzzle enthusiast Andre F. makes the building of this 42,000-piece mega puzzle look organized and relatively straight forward, but it should be immediately noted that the two and a half minute video captures almost one entire year of work. Also: 42,000 pieces!

The landmarks-themed puzzle, Around The World by Educa Borras, was started on April 10th, 2019 and completed on March 15th, 2020. It measures 7.49m by 1.57m (24.6ft by 5.2ft).
