For this project I used 3/4” laminated oak board, I downloaded a template from the Internet, and printed it to size using Matthias Wandell’s Big Print
I cut the board into a circle with a 14” radius using my home made circle jig, then changing the bit to a bull nose bit I cut the outer channel for the marbles to rest in.
Taping the template onto the board, I used a hammer and punch to mark the hole centres, before using my plunge router again with a bull nose bit to cut all the ‘holes’
Just to tidy it up, I used a 1/4” round over bit around the top, did some sanding, gave it a few coats of lacquer, and it was finished, all within an hour.
There is as bit more detail on my Blog
