The day after Andre posted his Quarto board game build (https://www.lumberjocks.com/projects/421659
), I had to make one. I thought it looked like fun and it only takes around 15 minutes to play a game. I just about followed Andre's build out the window with very few changes.
Instead of cutting a line in each game piece to designate the bottom, I burned in my logo instead.
I used some spalted wood on the top and also as a divider in the box. I made two small trays to hold the pieces and I covered them in felt. I used magnets to keep the sliding top closed and attached a bent laminated handle. It's only used to open the box not to carry it, the magnets would have to be much stronger or it would need a latch. My wife and I have been enjoying playing ever since. It really makes you think.
