  • Saw all the wood pieces to the appropriate length.
  • Then saw out the king’s crown.
  • Sand down all edges with sandpaper.
  • With a utility knife, cut the ends of the boundary pegs to a point so that they can be easily inserted into the lawn.
  • Use suitable Osmo products to add colour to the game pieces. Then they will not only look beautiful, but will also be well protected for a long time.
