i love wooden board games so when i recently saw the game nine men's morris i thought i would give making one a try.
And because the design i came up with had two sides i went for the nice old game of drafts (checkers)
The board and the pieces will be made from wood and cut and engraved on a laser cutter.
this is the first time I've made a board for a game from scratch so i know it wont be perfect but it was mainly a test to see if i could do it.
Step 1: Materials and Tools.
- wood. i used different types, all 3mm thick.
>walnut, spruce, obeche and a pine ply wood.
- Thin ply wood. i used a 1mm ply
- wood glue.
- small hinges and fastening latch, with tiny screws.
- sand paper
- laser cutter
