My first attempt at making a board game. Wasn’t too bad. turned the outside shape and the storage circle, then made the holes with a counter sink based on a template I sketched up. All the marbles are the large goons. The board is approximately 400 diameter and 40m thick. African Walnut. Thinking of doing another one, but the drilling is a lot of work!

That looks great! I love handmade games like this. To make the holes did you stick on a print-out and bore through it?

Nha, Actually took the time, calculated the spacing according the area and the area thru the center of the marble. But yeah, did actually take some time. Just wish I had the time to make another one! this time even bigger and with ball bearings.
