Make365 - Tabletop Ship Combat Pieces Progress


I made some more progress and design changes with the little wood ship pieces for my tabletop ship combat game. I realized that the tall sides on the first ship made it difficult to change the dice out, so I went with smaller 1/8" dowels as guides to keep the dice in place.

Ultimately the design is relatively simple: take a 2" piece of wood and mark off a d6 work from each corner, then cut off at 45 degrees.

After hand sawing the six ships (I ultimately made 7), I realized that this would have all been easier to do with Legos. I have a large tub. I should have done that.

Oh well!
