I must confess I do not yet know the answer to that question myself.

I suggest we wait and see.

    I very much admire your post from September 9th, 2011 where you created a rosewood backing for your Settlers of Catan board. I am currently in the process of making my own Catan board entirely out of wood, an already lengthy process exacerbated by my complete lack of power tools. I have found that my main hold-up is the challenge of making the numerous identical hexagon tiles by hand, especially since I’d rather not make each individually. The tiles you cut for your set were very beautiful and fit snugly together and I have been wondering, do you have any suggestions as to how I might go about this?

    I’ve also been entertaining the idea of having them made for me, but after hours of searching online I have been unable to find anything similar to what you’ve done (the closest I’ve found is laser cut plywood). Would you, or do you know of anyone that would, be interested in doing such a job?

    keep up the good work

      Hello Nick,

      Sorry I’ve been so long replying. Your comment somehow triggered my spam filter.

      You could potentially make the hexagons without power tools, although it would be a lot more work. You could draw a hexagon on both ends of a column of wood, then plane the edges down to your lines. You then would need to saw the column up accurately.

      I’m afraid I don’t know of anyone that could do it. I would imagine that the postage costs would be prohibitive for me to do it.
