Christmas gift ( not a knife )

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

i am making a gift for my wife. I make a ancient Viking boardgame. The HNEFATAFL .

 

The board is from oak wood. 48 x 48 x 3 cm.

Carving with burned backround a round the board. In the middle a round viking knotwork. And in the middle of the four sides a viking boat.

That's a beautiful piece.I'm sure she'll love it. I never thought of wood burning like that! That would make a nice picture frame too! Never herd of Tafl either! I just keep learnin new stuff. Tafl sounds like a klingon dish LOL. Does the loser of this game get pillaged, or a blood eagle

With the stones ( color glass ) without fieldlines. I changed the form of the ships a bit.

Even if you do not play the game it would be a wonderful conversation piece to have on a coffee table.  Love the intricate work that you have put into the game board.
