In this house we play a lot of games. One of my favorites has become Monopoly. In fact we have four different versions. This particular one is from my grandmother’s house and at least 40 years old. I thought it would be nice to spruce up the play just a bit.

First I created a 3d CAD drawing in SketchUp. This not only provided a 3d drafting lesson but also allowed my to work out the dimensions and interactions of all the parts. Next it was some quality time in the shop on to the build.

While not my design, I’m still happy with how the Monopoly Banker’s Tray turned out.
