Looking for a fun, simple weekend project? Here’s a tic-tac-toe board that we’ve created using laser engravable wood and plastic.

We created the board in this example using Rowmark Hardwood Sassafras material. The base for the board uses Sassafras 1/4". The top inlay section uses Sassafras 1/8".

The X’s and O’s were created using Rowmark ColorHues. The X’s were made with Lemon Zest 1/8", while the O’s used Flamingo 1/8".

For this project, really any 1/4" and 1/8" product will do. The great thing about this tic-tac-toe board is that it’s travel friendly — it’s perfect for car trips because the X’s and O’s won’t slide off the board if there’s a small bump in the road.
