Too cool of a toy for the kids not to make one after seeing others on here. Here’s my version.

Pictures show the progression as I added pieces. Last picture is the finished project with the pieces cut from a dowel and stained. Added a couple coats of wipe-on poly.

I think next time instead of painting the grooves, I’ll just add a thin inlay. The painting was a PITA. Got the stuff all over. It is colorful, though, and that’s what i was going for.

Biggest problem now is my wife tells me i should make 3 toys for each of my kids families for Christmas. Six kiddos, that’s 18 toys. Hmmm, better get started early this year.

Nice, I like it. You could also glue up the grid instead of painting it, and the 9 blocks, like a cutting board glue up.

Nice job. For color on lines or small areas I use sharpie markers. The color will look flat until you coat with polyurethane then turn gloss! And they don’t run or smear. Give it a try on a piece of scrap. Again nice job on the board, I may give this a try.

Don, Real nice looking version. I am sure they will be great Christmas gifts, good for any age from 2 on up.
