Made a 9x9 goban and mini shogiban
Made a 9x9 goban and mini shogiban on reverse side by use a Walnut Hollowę product called Basswood Country Rounds« large size. I used a grid print out from a spreadsheet program to place alignment dots with a pencil. Then lines with a permanent marker, a Sharpie«, and ruler to make grid lines, and cooridinates. Hoshi points were made by using the hole in binder paper and pencil to outline a circle, then used the permanent marke over that. Next, sealed it with polyurethane spray in three coats. The shogi pieces are from Yellow Mountain Imports.
Turned a TV dinner stand into a round floor goban. Wrote the lines by a permanent marker, then sealed with spray polyurethane, cut the legs short, drilled and bolted a new pivoting point. The height is now 12 inches. Link for a round go printable board pdf file
My toddler daughter can use it as a table too!
Makes other table boards into floor boards like a 19x19 table goban, shogiban, or a Grand Chess board.
For the Grand Chess board, I made reversi pieces for 10x10 reversi by painting then gluing two wooden disks together, can also use the pieces to play 11x11 go, and international checkers.
Out of corner molding, I made Stratego ® like pieces that I can put a label of the piece value on. That way it can be changed if a particular wood piece stain or grain pattern becomes associated with what the piece is. The natural color pieces are movable terrain barriers.
I also can add shogi or chess labels to the pieces to make for a Stratego® variant of chess or shogi, even Grand chess.
