My wife wanted a chinese checkerboard for Christmas. Solid cherry with laquer finish. I made a template on Autocad for the pattern, overlaid the cherry board and center punched the intersections. Used a “V” router bit in my drillpress to cut the dimples. Router with shop made circle fixture for the OD. 20 inch OD and 1 inch marbles. Good size for grandma and grandkids.
