Red Oak Plywood

Red Oak Plywood

Thickness: 1/2 in, Dimensions: 8 in × 12 in


Stain Plywood (Optional)

60 minutes

I sanded the plywood to 220 grit. I then used a dark Danish oil to darken the plywood so the lines would be a bit more visible. Follow the directions on the can.


Cut the board out

47 minutes

This could be sped up by making the lines shallower. The depth currently in the file at isn’t really necessary. 1/8 would be plenty. This was one of my first projects I did on the X-carve. After having more experience I would suggest .1 inch depth should be plenty for making the lines.


Play the Game

15 minutes

Grab some checker pieces or something similar and then play the game.
