  1. backgammon board 1st try

    Thanks to Gary K for the inspiration to do this project; I appreciate his work and willingness to share his knowledge with the rest of us. I have always wanted to build one of these for as long as I have been wood working. Gary was my push to make one for a gift, and most probably more gifts...
  2. Wahoo (aggravation) Board Game

    My in-laws are crazy about games, any kind of game. Last winter I was introduced to what they simply called "the board game", which turned out to be Wahoo, or Aggravation as most know it. I was hooked immediately. The board they used was an old sheet of T1-11 siding with holes drilled through...
  3. Board Game Aggravation

    This is one of many game boards that I have made for family and friends over the years. It is called Aggravation and it is played with cards and marbles. It has two sides, 4 player and 6 player. The board is made with birch ply and edged with stained oak including a handle for easier...
  4. Backgammon Board Folding

    G'day I have just finished this backgammon set for my brother
  5. Quoridor Board

    We were inspired when we saw a few of these floating around LJ's so my Son and I decided we would try to make a compact travel version. Found some scrap 4/4 Mahogany, wrapped it with a little piece of slotted Oak. Created some little Men-Holly, Ebony, Teak & Walnut. Printed some game direction...
  6. Monopoly Board

    This was a fun little project that I built for a couple friends of mine who love board games. It's a small project that doesn't require a whole lot of materials but is something I really enjoyed making. In retrospect, monopoly might not have been a good choice, for some reason people get very...
  7. The Konung, hnefatafl

    Gradually implement my old idea of creating a set of Hnefatafl (Viking chess). Cut 25 pieces of wood is exhausting, so you have to cheat. Made silicone molds and cast figurines of plasticrete. Will soon be able to boast of the end result
  8. Pegs and Jokers Custom Game Set - Walnut with glass + glitter + epoxy inlays

    I made this custom walnut Pegs and Jokers set for a Christmas gift over the holidays. The inlays are a mixture of crushed mirror glass, turquoise embossing glitter, and epoxy. The pegs are acrylic beads on bamboo dowels. If you've never played this game before, it's super fun! You can find more...
  9. Aggregation Board Game

    Built a board game for some friends.
  10. DIY Wooden Game Board

    I made a wooden game board for one of my favorite 2-player board games: The Duke from Catalyst Game Labs. The Duke is a 2 player abstract strategy game. In some ways, it is similar to chess. For more details about The Duke visit the official website for the game where you can find the rules and...
  11. Birch Settlers of Catan Board

    This is my Settlers of Catan (a registered trademark. I am not affiliated) board. I've spent a year designing it and now have started selling it, after a Kickstarter campaign. I had never done any woodworking before this, so I'm still learning. The pictured board was finished by a couple...
  12. Wood Tic Tac Toe Board

    This is a pretty easy project and makes a nice holiday gift. This version was made from a scrap piece of hardwood and a 5/8" dowel. As an extra touch, I added a compartment inside the board to store the pieces. The compartment panel is held on with magnets for a clean look. Build Instructions...
  13. Yinsh

    This was a prototype to see if the size was right and if I liked the resin inlay. The game is like checkers and connect 5. I think I'll remake it with triangles a little larger.
  14. Two New Crokinole Boards

    I got this new plywood at the local high end lumber store I was not impressed. This stuff from China had the thinnest top laminate I have ever worked with. If I sanded with anything less than 400 grit it was good-bye finish. I think I will start making my own panels for the next games I build if...
  15. Quarto! board game

    Here is a game i made called Quarto. the object of the game is to place pieces on the board and form a four in a row line with all four pieces sharing an attribute. The pieces all have a combination of four different attributes, tall or short, square or round, light or dark and solid or hollow...
  16. Quoridor

    This is Quoridor. Dynamic & frustrating. It might be more fun to watch people play, as it does get intense. This is a hit with large groups. It is a strategy game of 2-4 players. The object is to reach the opposite side you started on before your opponent. You can place a wall or move your pawn...
  17. Hickory Board Game Box

    This is a box I created to house all my Risk board games and pieces. If you are anything like me, you have a favorite board game that has grown with expansions, boards, and pieces. I made this to keep all my pieces in one place and keep them organized. Made from Hickory and Hickory plywood...
  18. Box Usurper - adjustable board game shelving

    There was a successful kickstarter called BoxThrone, which is a modular/adjustable board-game specific storage system. Unfortunately, its metal/wire shelving and looks kinda janky. The idea is bookcases are bad because if you store games vertically stuff falls out, or if you store things...
  19. Settlers of Catan board

    This was a very finicky thing to make. I made all the hexagons and border out of 3/4 inch plywood. Made the "resource" pieces all identical by first creating a template. I made the template by drawing a hexagon with a compass onto some thin plywood. I then roughed it out and then sanded to the...
  20. Beer Swap 2019 submission

    Hi all, I was travelling during the reveals of the swap so this project is a little late. My recipient was RichBolduc. I was scratching my head trying to come up with something interesting to make. My wife and I went into a local quaint little bar that had some of these games and people were...
