The two latest manaca boards left the shop today. Both made with locally grown and harvested walnut wood. One is book matched with live edges, the other has a custom resin filled engraving.
A quick video on how I make my mancala boards. Have a look.
Tough guy woodworker spent the day sewing drawstring bags for the mancala boards. I could find any that would fit, so I made my own. Nine boards are complete. Just need to shoot photos of each one.
Thats 140 cups cut with the router. Still need to round over the edges and do a whole lot of sanding. Getting closer to gettin them all done. You can see the difference in the color that time had on the padauk wood. The one in the upper right has been sitting for about a week the other was freshly planed the other day.
I cut out all the cups and stores in the padauk/maple board today. The chips made me think of orange cream soda.
Only nine more to go.
