I was inspired to make this after seeing this one from Mike Gager here on Lumberjocks. I had never heard of Quarto before, but was intrigued by the geometric shapes and the simplicity of the game. Plus I thought it would make a nice Christmas gift.

You’re getting better and better on each project! Did you cut a groove in the frames so the top can slide into the groove?

Beautiful piece! I love making cribbage boards, but now I think I will be researching this Quarto game, it looks fun…as any game made of wood is!

This game is really cool! I also recommend to play it with family on Chistmas or other celebration! I want to show you the game I like to play alone or with my favourite buddy, this game is madame chance online gambling! Casino and poker are my favourite! I hope some of you also ike it.

Have your say...
