I decided to try making a smaller version of a board game that I discovered at GenCon. It is a very simple wooden game that while simple to learn has a subtle strategy to it making it fun to play a quick game. Making it out of a nice wood makes it a nice coffee table piece so you can grab it and play a quick game. And the smaller size makes it not take up so much of that table (even fits nicely on an end table).
This is made from 1/4 draft board on the bottom and a mix of maple and walnut proof grade on top. The pieces are double sided by gluing the two woods together (also makes them a nice weight). Really pleased with how this simple design came out and how nice it looked with the proof grade woods.
I thought that said “pathogen,” and was all like, “NO, they’re portable enough already!!!” I’m glad it was a game instead – yours looks really clean and classy. Now I have to go and find it, because I may need to add it to my family’s (slowly) growing collection of GlowForged board games!
