I made a set, once, in the past. I went the somewhat easier route and bought dowel stock. I think it was 1 1/4”, which was a little big VS the squares so 1 1/8” would have been better. I then took an older 1” forstner bit and filed off the center brad point. I used that bit to drill out the center of the game pieces for a bit of a recess. Naturally they looked a little plain but for me, also with out a lathe, it was the best solution for me. I have heard of people using hole saws with out the drill bit in the center but have yet to see it done.
