Can anyone guess what ancient stategy game I am making?

There might be a prize in it if you are the first one to email me with the correct answer. 

Doing some custom details. 

I am making 4 at a time. 

Live "action V-carving WOO HOO!

Take a shot see it you can guess what it is.,

Making Cribbage boards now,

We will have many designs and styles to come. but I wanted to knock out some basic ones first. 

What you have from left to right is 4 quarter sawn red oak pieces, 1 Curly spalted maple piece, 
and the last is a mix between walnut, oak and padauk ( or this spelling if you prefer. Pterocarpus soyauxii)

I will be getting them finished out in the next day or so, but keep looking you will see more designs and "tricks" with the games.

This one is the curly spalted maple, It is quite special. 

It kind of looks like it has flames going through it, I cannot wait to see it POP when its finished. 

Please drop me a note I bet we can come up with something really cool for you too.

Topographical maps anyone?

This is a personal thing for a lot of people. This one is fairly good sized map of Lake Geneva, WI. About 26 inches long for a wall hanging. Another being made as we speak of Lake Delavan too for the same person. 

This piece is made from White oak. The back is cleared out so it's not so heavy on the wall. I will take images of that once it's finished. 

Compass is correctly facing. Lots to do to finish sand and finish as it is still on the machine. 

Each level represents about 12.5 feet deep or so. 

Need something like this for your den or your "lair"?
 I can do mountains and hidden volcano's too if you like. 

email me please. 

I would seriously appreciate the opportunity to work on your projects too.

Thank you -Bill
