Yes, I do make other things besides Monopoly boards. No, I’m not planning on making another one. For the board, I ended up using some cherry ply from Owyn’s, versus proofgrade from GF. The Star Wars board that used Proofgrade ply has some significant warping, and I’m keeping some weights on it trying to straighten out the boards. The Owyn’s ply has been true, and no warping, even after cutting. Outside of having to add your own mask, and it not being finished, I think that this was a nicer piece of wood.

In 1991, I worked as a camp counselor at a summer camp in northern Wisconsin. Best summer of my life. I have been volunteering for them ever since. I am currently on the board of directors, and our annual Strong Kids campaign raises money for those kids who normally cannot afford to go to camp. I’m not very good with the ask and trying to get contributions in the traditional sense, so after creating the Star Wars Monopoly board, I decided to make one specifically for Camp Jorn, and raffle it off. This one took significantly less time than the last, but still a ton of work. Here is my 2nd Monopoly board:

And here is the SVG for the bankers tray, if anyone is interested.
