Made this boards as prizes for Kid’s Church.

Routed out with a core-box bit and a simple template (made with a forstner bit and the scroll saw). Poly finish. The instructions I plaguarized from Maplenut’s wife (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/26797) because she did such a great job.

The first two had metal hinges, but for these three I decided it would be better to try wooden hinges. Wow, I learned a few important lessons about the need to measure carefully and use a center punch!

Once again the wood was incense cedar fence boards, with birch for the hinge links.

I really enjoy this game…been playing it since I picked up my first board in Ethiopia ~1995. It appears that you have either magnets or felt pads at the corners. I like the magnet idea.

airfieldman, yes they are magnets. I realized right after I sent the post that I forgot to mention them. They aren’t rare-earth, just cheap ones, but two pairs can keep the two halves together enough.

I must say that I find you’re posts most readable, for an engineer (tee-hee).

Have your say...
