Last weekend I made a Quarto game board. To make one see the video by MereMortal Steve Ramsey I picked up a HD 1 1/4 oak baluster and oak dowel. About $10. I cut the long pieces at 3” and the short ones at 2”. I used Minwax gunstock stain on half and General Finishes Java gel stain on the other, leftover from previous projects. The board was scrap 1/8” ply glued on top of 1/4” hardboard. Then framed with oak scraps. The entire set was sprayed with clear laquer. Easy and simple game to make, very fun to play.

Interesting. Looks at first glance that it’d be confusing, but I think once you gat the hang of it, it’s probably not too bad.
