This is my take on a project posted by Steve Ramsey of Woodworking for mere mortals. He has a you tube video of how he built it and how to play this game. This game goes back to roman times so it’s been around for a while.
My box is a dovetailed pine box with 1/4” birch plywood panels glued to the top and bottom. I then covered all the raw edges with some cherry trim. I covered the insides with some red felt which is the favorite color of the recipient of this box.
This is a very fun game to play and I plan on making one of these for myself.

Great job. I just made one of these for my three youngest grandkids and took it over to show my three adult grandkids and they couldn’t stop playing with it.

This is a game that I could very easily become addicted to. I can see why it has been such a favorite and has the longevity it does.
