Birthday present for a friend. I’ve only played this game once, so I hope I have the right number of colors for each hexagon. Took me a long time to figure out how to make regular hexagons. I made a lot of kindling.

Ripped my board to width, then set up a stop the table saw to crosscut out rectangles. (Remembering hexagons are taller than they are wide unlike octogons was part of my problem)Then added an extension and a stop to the miter gauge face. Set miter to 60 degrees and cut off four corners flipping the piece so that the only reference edges against the miter guage face are the two edges that were against the fence and blade when the stock was ripped, and the miter guage doesn’t have to be reset. Not as complicated as it sounds I’ll p try and post some pics. But boy I made a lot of weird shapes before stumbling upon the method.

So beautiful colouration. I bet there are lot of problems making hexagons, but this turned out so perfect.

This is amazing! My family plays a lot of Settlers and this would be amazing since a lot of time the edges (water) on our boards don’t like to stay together.

Thank you averagedadworkshop. I’ve only played a couple times, but my friend plays a a lot. I didn’t even remember the edge pieces weer water. Do you now what the Hexagons pieces are? I looked online and copied a picture and made 3 red, 3 blue, 4 dark green, 4 light green, 4 yellow and one ‘tan’ though mine is dark brown. Is that right?

I can’t remember how many of each there are because we always end up using an expanded board, but there is brick (red), sheep (light green), wood (dark green), wheat (yellow), ore (grey/blue) and a desert (tan). Your quantities sound about right though.
