Spent most of my day on this thing. A slightly different take on the Connect 4 game I grew up playing. I made giant checker board to go with it. The checkers are 4” round. I probably spent more time with the paintbrush on this project than I did at the saw.

Would like to know more about your game looks interesting. I googled it and do not come up with anything like yours, looks like you may throw the round disc’s at the holder it try and knock 4 in a row out of your color.

Little different and intersting shape -squares, instead circles.

I don’t have a hole saw. So instead of the traditional circle openings I made a “I” beam and spaced them out with a lattice work type structure. It still plays the same but has a unique look. Necessity being the mother of invention. I made the entire game with 3 tools; table saw, miter saw and band saw. On a previous version I even made the checkers on the table saw (not safe I came close to losing a finger).
