1

24x24 piece of wood

I used an old table top that was lying around.

2

Use a 3/4 inch round nose router bit

This bit works best for the marble holders, as an alternative you could drill holes and use wooden golf tees instead of marbles.

3

1/16 end mill bit for all other carving

Used a standard 1/16 end mill bit for all the rest of the carving.

4

Final cuts

use a 1/4 end mill for the outside , I ran it about 3/8 down and cut the rest out with jig saw and finished with a hand router.

5

Paint and purchase marbles

I paint , so i had several colors of acrylics around the house, finished it of with lacquer. below is a link to where i bought game marbles. I bought these because a made 2 different games you could probably find just enough cheaper.

nicely done. I wanted to make this but it seems the marble holes are missing from the project.....
