A while back, I asked for some help laying out this design in Inkscape. Thanks to those who responded. I ended up re-doing the design in my vector editor of choice (don't laugh) ArcMap. After several attempts at exporting directly to .SVG, I was able to get something workable in Easel. For this, I had to do the "select by cut type" and delete, do the holes, undo, then select the other type, do the lines with a v-bit, undo, etc. Kind of a pain, but it turned out okay.
The top swivels on a pin and I used two sets of magnets in opposite corners to snap the lid closed. The base is a 2x10 cedar scrap from the scrap bin at the home store. The board itself is an oak scrap (with sentimental value) that I was told "to make into a cribbage board" by a guy whom I received some really nice birch slabs.
I think he will like it. I think I will try some more of these since I have the pattern now, even though they are more work than they are worth (retail)
