Machining trays for WarMachine mini’s

So this is a peek into my really dorky side.  The general idea is a needed a tray to transport my mini’s from the kitchen counter to the game table.  The end result is much more complicated than it needed to be, but i learned a lot in the process.  One of which is you probably shouldn’t use the old 1/4″ bit you’ve had for 8+ years for moderately fine work.  The other is how hard maple is to plane/join.  I have never actually worked with a real hardwood before, so that was fun.

Video of the process.
