I built this Quarto game as a wedding gift for a friend. The board is made of quartersawn white oak with a copper inlay. The pieces are also made of oak or 4130 steel.
This was the first time I tried a metal inlay. I’m not too thrilled with the cleanliness of the results, although I’m happy with what I learned in the process.
This was also the first time I used a bluing agent on steel. I’m very happy with how the pieces came out.
