Step 1- Plane down 1/2 inch Walnut to 1/4 inch thick (this material will be the pegs).
if you care to stain/paint your game board before you cut it, you can. It makes the process neater and easier, but is not required. The pictured project I finished was stained with a Minwax Gunstock color stain and then painted black lines. Again, not necessary, but I like it.
Step 2- put Maple on the milling machine and clamp it down! I’ve made the game board just the right size so that if you want to make 2 of them at the same time, you can. But for the purpose of this competition and personal use, only one is present in Easel.
Step 3- Hit carve and zero your bit (1/8th inch straight end mill, 2 flute)! This will carve the game board, which should take about 36 minutes (according to Easel).
Step 4- remove the game board/maple and put the 1/4 inch walnut material on.
Step 5- move to project screen labeled “Pegs”.
Step 6- Het Carve and zero your bit again! This will carve out 18 pegs, but for the purposes of the game, you only need 14. I carved a few extra because they are small and could break during removal if you aren’t careful.
Step 7- sand down with 150-220 grit sand paper to remove any fuzzies and enjoy! Pegs can be used to trace maze route AND to jump each other in peg game!
*Peg game is played just like the triangle version at a large food chain restaurant. Maze is designed partially using Easel maze generator, partial my adjustments.
