    Gen Grant game board

    Here are some picture of the game boards I have made. You put the marbles on the board and jump the marbles one at a time until the last jump leaves one marble on the board.

    Its a lot harder than you think.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    So where does the crank go? Does the sound come out of the little holes? Does the monkey like it?

    The boards look great, Jay. What bit did you use for the holes?

    Thanks Vaughn
    I used a 1/2" bull nose router bit in the drill press on the first 50 or so that I made and then put them in the CNC when I had it and got with the program

    This one was finished up by hand.

    Larry I use a cutoff of welding rod installed from the bottom and then for the finger hole I just sand it with a 1/2 spindle sander on the edge of the main body I can get more pictures of one thats not put together yet if anyone wants to see more of how its done.

    Nice looking boards. And yes I would like to see more detail on how you make them...


    So you had a cnc and got rid of it? What kind and size did you have. I have a little homemade one that never quite cut the mustard, hope to improve or build again soon..
    Don't mean to hijack the thread, I can ask in a new thread if you want..

    Garry I had a Andi WFD and ran it with AlphCam I want to look into a smaller CNC more for hobby use sometime. Something like the ShopBot or Tecno I just want it to cut the repetitive organ parts.

    Will get some more pictures up in a little while of the game board.
