Well I’m back here with my latest project. It’s a folding Mancala board, with hinges and a latch to keep it closed. The wood I chose was Padauk, it measures about 24 X 6 inches when laid open flat and is about 3/4 inch thick. I used a router and template to make the holes with a 1/2 inch round nose bit, then chiseled the bottoms of the holes smoother. I then sanded it and put on 2 coats of Minwax paste finishing wax. The hinges and latch were from a box I got at a thrift store. The stones I used are tigers eye beads. I really like it and think I’ll be making some more for presents here sometime this fall. All comments and critiques are welcome. Thanks for looking, and thanks again Dad (Scrappy) for the use of your tools and knowledge!!
