Throughout this Instructable I will show you how to make a Settlers of Catan board out of plywood. Using some scrap plywood I found in my workshop I made a very simple settlers of catan game using plywood and other scraps.

Step 1: Trace & Cut Out the Inside Pieces of the Board

You can do this in several different orders but I chose to work on the board itself first, and then trace the pieces after to insure my border fits perfectly.

• Take a game piece from a Settlers of Catan board and trace it onto some scrap wood. I've attached an image showing the dimensions if you do not have the game. Image credit to: engineering.purdue.edu
• Always line the pieces up on the edge of the plywood to reduce the overall amount of cuts you'll have to make.
• Also try your best to line up the pieces so you can make longer continuous cuts. Also helping reduce the overall total cuts. Trust me there's a lot of cuts.
