Use a large poster frame to put your puzzle together on. A thrift store is an excellent place to get one. Turn the poster over for a plain background or use tag board from the craft store.
You will have edges to keep the pieces from getting knocked off and it can be shoved under a couch or bed between puzzle "sessions"
Tip: Get a "big" frame 24x 30 or the biggest you can find.
I made a puzzle board out of cardboard. I had a large flat box from a music stand for a porta-keyboard. I cut the top side off and folded down the edges and stapled them down to size and now have a 38"x23"x1.5" puzzle storage and working surface.
I forgot about storing under the couch, thanks, easier than toting it around to different rooms hoping no cat thinks its a handy sand box.
