Yes I make other things besides toys.
This a marble game that use to play when I was a kid. We called it wahoo, some call it aggravation. It has a lot of different names, depends on what part of the country you are in.
I use 1/2 inch plywood framed with pine. I usually stain these, but I tried something different with this one by painting it. I use a plunge router with a 1/2 inch round nose bit to make the holes. The marbles fit the holes perfect.
This probably my best seller. Sorry the pic isn't very good.

In our family we grew up playing this game but we called it murder. this is the second board of this type that i have made but i changed it up and made it an eight player game. it also has a chess/checker board on the reverse side.

Very kewl, Charles! I remember that game! Now did you frame the painted piece, or did you feather the paint at the edges, burn it.....?

I stained the board, then painted it black and sanded the edges.
