This is a Chinese Checker board I recently completed in Oak and Walnut. I made the board by cutting strips of oak and walnut to width, cutting the angles and end gluing then together, then edge glued the strips together. the dimples were cut using a template, plunge router, and 1/2” ball router bit.

Very nice looking board, have not played Chinese Checkers for a couple of days, or is that years. Where did
you find the template, or did you make it yourself? Thanks for the memories.

Very nice. I was at Rockler last week and they did not have any templates in stock, was actually thinking about getting one to make a few of these for presents.

Well done. Can’t recall seeing the walnut/oak combination… it contrasts (or compliments) well.

Wow looks great, another blood sweat an tears routing project. How do you manage to keep dimples symmetry, any jig?
