Board Splitter 2 (Board Cutter 2 in the UK version) is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box.

Puzzle

US Version

Well, here we have yet another inconveniently shaped board. This one's even more unwieldy than the last, so you need to cut it into two pieces that you can reassemble to form a rectangle.

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?

Just like in the first board-splitting puzzle, you need to cut the board in two places to make a second piece. Don't forget, since you'll be combining these two pieces into a single rectangle, you need to make sure all the little gaps and protrusions in your two boards fit together snugly.

After you make your cuts, you won't need to rotate either piece to make them fit together as a rectangle.

US Version

When cut properly, the two boards both have a maximum length of four units. To make a piece with that length, try cutting the board below the fourth square down from the upper-left corner. You'll need to make one more cut, but we'll leave that one to you.

UK Version

One side of the rectangle is four units. To make a piece with that length, try cutting the board four units above or four units below a corner.
