Board Splitter 1 (Board Cutter 1 in the UK version) is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box.

Puzzle

US Version

Here we have an oddly shaped board. Since this board is rather unwieldy as is, you've decided to cut it into two pieces that you and rejoin to form a square.

Assuming you aren't allowed to flip either of the pieces over once the board is cut, where should you cut it in order to achieve the above?

The final square will be four units tall by four units wide.

You have to cut the board in two separate places to solve this puzzle.

Doesn't that area around the hole in the board look like a good place to cut?

Too bad!

Are you sure that the way you split the board will allow you to recombine the pieces into a square?

Easier than it looks, isn't it?
