I had cut some very large and/or complex puzzles recently, so this is part of my “back to basics” movement.  There is nothing unusual about the puzzle except the pieces are smaller than my normal and I used more earlet (or butterfly) interlocks.  I wanted each piece to have a lot of interlocking areas and a minimum of straight cuts.  I’m happy with the results of this puzzle.
