I have seen several of these on here and decided to make a version of it. Just used a walnut slab from a log that I planed and sanded down. Since it has a live edge and was going for more of the rustic look I didn’t bother to try to make all the holes uniform and even. Now I just need to go pick up some rocks to play. Thanks for looking!

Nice! I like the rustic look – kind of goes back to the roots of the game.

The natural look is great! Great game. I get small ‘flattened’ marbles at Wally-World or Michaels for my sets.

Nice- you could also use that for a deviled egg holder. : )

Craig – I used a large cove bit and router to make the recesses. Then hand sanded smooth. Thanks for all the positive feedback!
