Made this wooden Othello board game (also known more recently as Reversi) for my mom for Christmas! It was a total pain, but it came out really well. No wood carving involved, just pieces of wood cut and stained and finished and put together. I got tired toward the end, so the small box that holds the game pieces I bought from JoAnne Fabric and just stained. And the pieces were just the round wood disks from Hobby Lobby with a sharpie marker on one side and finished with a satin spray.
