My wife and I trade off making Christmas presents for family and close friends. This year it was my turn. I decided to make “color sudoku” boards with some leftover Walnut.

Lessons learned:
  • Rounding up nine different bright colors of marbles is harder than it sounds.
  • Spraying lacquer smoothly is harder (and messier) than it looks.

I’ve always wondered how you ‘play’ the Sudoku games like this. I’d assume you’d have to get a playing board from a book or something. Not sure if you could just put numbers on the board and go.

Nice work.
