i have been making steady progress this week with the project. squares for one of the game boards have been stained and i have most of the 'craters' drilled. i need to find a drill press with a deep throat for the very large holes. i began staining/making the pieces for both of the game boards today as well. i wasnt going to fill the crater holes at first but i rather like the spheres in them now so i think i will keep it that way.
