This is a storage case I made for what is arguably the oldest game still being played today. The inside is lined with felt to protect the wooden bowls and board, and I used carbon paper and a dragon tattoo design I found online to wood-burn the lid. If only my wife & I spent as much time playing as I spent making the case!

Ah! Another Go player! I thought I was the only one here. Chinese-style set, eh? I’m hooked on the Japanese style (what I started with). Are those Yunzi stones?
I made my own bowls, but have never tried my own board. Very nice.

Love the dragon burning.
I have been wanting to inlay achinese dragon on one of my projects but my marquetry skills are lacking.
