  1. Submarine Ukers Game Boards

    I was commissioned to reproduce an ukers board that someone had had made several years ago. The edges and one of the home ports (large squares) are made of Koa. the other home ports and the corresponding final strip are made of Bloodwood, Purple heart, and Mango. The dove tail slots in the home...
  2. Settlers of Catan Gameboard

    Built this Settlers of Catan gameboard to replace the flimsy cardboard "border" that comes with the US game. Made it from three layers of 1/4" MDF board glued as a "sandwich". The outer two boards have cut-outs in the shape of the board for the 4-player and 5-6 player boards. You can see the...
  3. Chess Table

    I've always wanted to build a chess table and the pandemic has allowed me the time to finally get it done. The main makeup of the table is maple/mahogany for the game board and oak for the table. I had originally planned on maple/walnut for the game board, but I came across a mahogany board at...
  4. A couple game boards

    I saw a couple unique games at a game store in the Mall of America a year or two ago. I decided I could make them at home… so I did. One is called, Quarto, and the other is called, Quoridor. I turned the pieces on the lathe, and then the boards were done on the table saw, and a router. I...

I copied the tracking/tension mechanics off of an older Crouch sander I liked. Very simple, runs good, should have built it sooner. Sometimes you build...
  7. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Hello there, I am building a built-in cabinet and bookshelf. In the room where I am building it there is no forced air heating, just a woodstove. There used to be forced air in the room because it used to be smaller, it was expanded in 1980, the forced air was taken out and woodstove put in. I...
  8. Finishing
    I am working on my first true cabinet project. Everything was going well till I went to install the drawers and the drawers (birch plywood) are 1/16" too wide for the cabinet opening after the drawer slides are installed. Question is, how best do I solve this? My thought is to modify the face...
  9. Woodworking Skill Share
    I have enjoyed making and playing with wooden Settlers of Catan boards. I'm starting to think about version 3.0, but I would like to somehow make the surrounding border of the board out of one piece instead of gluing up a myriad of hexes. If you don't know what I'm talking about, you can see...
