This is one of the Christmas presents I am working on in between several others as the finish is drying.
This game board is like several others on this site but I decided to do a build up on Baltic birch plywood to hopefully to prevent it from warping after reading Gene’s (VIPOND) post.
The top surface is jatoba which I think will be a nice contrast .
The little squares are cut very precise on my small sled and as you can see I got them bang on as they have to be . All the parts where planed to 1/4” thickness with a 2 thousands difference in thickness and after the glue up everything is nice and square .
I used two different assembly methods as you can see from the pics and both work well.
Now I will make the game pieces and a rim to hold the pieces.
Back to the shop tomorrow and get those Elves going in high gear.
