What you need:
- Laser Printer
- 4mm thick MDF board (I used six boards of 60cm by 30cm as this was the biggest dimension the laser printer could handle). I couldn't afford it, but a nicer looking wood will ofcourse give nicer results.
- Optional: 9mm thick MDF board for the cities, villages and pieces to keep the board together
- Glue for wood, preferably a strong one.
- The .svg files for the laser printer. I will provide the files for the corresponding tile in each step.
- A lot of patience :)
About ten euros/ dollars worth of wood. If you use scraps and leftovers, it's for free!
Where credit is due:
As I mentioned before, I based this project on a wonderful wood working project I saw on instructables right here: http://www.instructables.com/id/Custom-3D-Settlers-of-Catan-board-from-scrap-plywo/ . You can see his version in the second picture.
Now, let's get started!
Update 19-7-12: I'm having trouble uploading the .svg-files but I will make them available as soon as possible! Until then you guys can use the .PDF-files
Update 27-7-12: I uploaded the .svg-files in a .rar file since I didn't manage to upload the unzipped files. Just unrar them and you're good to go!
