You'll need to decide what size you want your board to be. "Typical" size boards have either 1 3/4" squares or 2" squares.

This board was made with the 1 3/4" squares. Making the playing surface of the board 14" square. Your border width can be determined later. You may decide not to have one.

Below is a list of some of the tools used:
  • Bar Clamps
  • Pipe Clamps
  • Belt Sander
