I first found out about this game here on Lumberjocks. I played online and really enjoyed it. Decided to make some of them for Christmas presents this year. Bonus was that they were all made out of scrap wood I had laying around; didn’t purchase anything new. The first one is maple with Cherry outer layers and the one in the poorer quality picture was oak in the middle overlayed with paduak. This was a really neat color combination and was especially suited for my folks who live in Indiana and are IU fans: go red and white!
Learned some interesting lessons on the first one that really helped clean up the second, namely: plan your cuts. Cut the grooves against the grain first, otherwise every single square will tearout.
