My wife and I love to play Mancala, so I decided to make a board for us. First game board I’ve ever made, so a bit of a learning experience.
Found a nice box core router bit for the pits, but had to build a jig for the end holes since the router edge guide wasn’t good for making squares.
Glued some sandpaper to paint stirrers to sand the inside of the hinge notches.
Instead of a locking clasp, I thought it would be cool to embed some neodymium magnets into the wood using a forstner bit to make the holes and a plug cutter to make tiny cylinders to hide them.
Finished it off with danish oil to really make the grain patter beautiful.
