Bruce, Did you use the plans from WOOD mag.?

I did but changed up some stuff-This one actully has 2 drawers 1 for marbles and 1 for checker pieces and a checker/backgammon board that stores underneath.

Will have to get with ya on source for marbles!

Yes Used Wood mag’s plans .
My first attempt with the holes was wrong as I used the same template but assumed that it was a double rather than what it turned out to be so I turned the board around and started anew on the other side.
I also made the mistake of trying to cut the drawer with a band saw. not cool as It didn’t stay within the lines.
Oh well…
I used the drawer as planned.
Found this source on the net
Universal merchandise co Inc.
Ft Wayne Ind.
Full set of marbles at reasonable price.
Good Luck.
