My first project. Still plain wood, my step-son wants to paint it so I am waiting for him to pick a color.

Nice job. So many facets going on here; swivel hinge, carving, and getting the geometry right. Would love to see the painted piece.

Hey that is a real cool idea. Nice game but the hidden compartment is neat improvement!!!!!!!!!Is that a magnet hiding in there to lock it shut? You could sell them to Cracker Barrel!!!!!!!!Jim

@Jim Jakosh…yes that is a magnet, there are magnets in both corners on the lid and the bottom. I think that is a bit of overkill, the next one I build will have a washer in the bottom and a magnet in the lid, should hold just as well. Found the plans online and tweaked them a little, and going to tweak them a little more..LOL.

Smitty, Love the idea of the opening for the pegs to go in. Looks good. I have made a few of these and have been able to put the directions on them using a laser printer and iron. Let me know if you are interested. It seems I have never posted one on here.
btw.. Welcome to LumberJocks.
