This is a project I started with my brother when I was home last Christmas. He has a pretty active gaming group and wanted some terrain for the clubhouse. He plays piggies and thought some swamp terrain would be pretty sweet. We sketched out a couple ideas and set to work.
Here are the materials we used;
Wooden craft sticks
Odds and ends from the bits box
A pair of side-cutters to chop the sticks
Ruler, knife, etc...
We would make several buildings on pylons, a wide dock, wooden bridges, and a few hillocks. We also made some "interest" pieces like a pig corral, still, and saw horse.
We cut a bunch of wooden stips using the side cutters. These often come "popsicle" style, so the rounded edges had to go.
Next I will show some of the bits we made to dress up the board
