Dissection Puzzles

How to dissect, for instance, a square, such that the pieces can be rearranged to a triangle? See here for a hinged wooden construction of this classical puzzle!

How to dissect a triangle, such that the pieces can be rearranged to a hexagon? See here for several ways doing that, including an original new one!

See one of my newest dissections: a partially hinged dissection with rotational symmetry from dodecagon to square!

Inspired by the above dissection (dodecagon to square) I found a general way of dissecting a {3n} to {n}.

Dissection links

My interest in dissection puzzles was raised by a nice set of dissection puzzles ("Four Tricky Two-Way Puzzles") from tesselations.com.
