Nice set, I love this game. The carrying case is a nice touch. I plan on batching out a few of these for gifts this spring, might have to consider a box as well. Nice work.

Possibly the best use of an Ikea dresser I have ever seen. Fine work.

Great job. Picklehead already took my line about Ikea.

Nice kubb set and the box really sets it off. May you never knock the King over too early.
