That's what I was thinking, some sort of game. No more "tips" eh? Clue?

Second guess - Monopoly

a "bored" game or a board game since it's made from boards....
with "on board" storage of the pieces

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

I have the picture in my mind, without drawings, sometimes these things donít quite turn out the way we expected they would.

Leg ready in the lathe using cherry. The flutes were done on a router table, with a very simple 10 minute jig, the 1/4 cut out on the table saw, then the top spindle, Padauk slice and bottom stick were glued together with two 1/2" dowels through all. After about 30 minutes drying, the legs were turned.



Legs attached to the box, glued and clamped using a band clamp.



More tomorrow, we will start working on the table top.

Looking great. I really, really like the disc of padauk in the legs. That's classy.

Would you mind showing how you did the fluting?

Thx for the complement.
The flutes on the router table, jig:
Running seriously against time on this project, so this was really Jury rigged. Two pieces of pine with holes, dry wall screws and an index drawing glued to one. The router bit is from Amana. If I had more time, or a lot of flutes to do, I would make a proper jig.

Ok, I think I get the general idea. You use those to hold the workpiece still whilst routing the flutes.

Progress tonight.

Cut 1 3/4 strips from my off-cuts Padauk and Pau Amarelo. Not worried about making more off-cuts, they will become either checkers or chess pieces. Glue the strips together and go watch TV for 20 minutes.



Cut the glue-up across the grain, so we have three blocked strips, placed neatly together. Slice 3/32" veneer strips from these.



Use 1/2" Domestic Birch Ply as for the box as the substrate and veneer the ply with the checker strips, some mitered figured soft maple and edge the ply with Cherry hardwood. After giving this about 30 minutes (Risky) I hand planed the surface to get the veneer down to 1/16". No sanding on this top, if you know Padauk, next to a light wood, you would know why. To finish plane, one needs special unconventional angles on the iron, as there is grain direction all over the place and Padauk tears out like no other.



The top is glued onto the box, two 1/2" Birch Ply's using same grain orientation laminated basically. You can never have enough clamps.




Tomorrow evening we start with the chess pieces, 32 off and 24 checker pieces, must finish this Saturday afternoon.

Wow !!!!! That's some fine workmanship.
I'm really liking the design of this. It's going to look sharp with a finish. Can't wait to se what you do for the pieces.
