Puerto Rico Market Tray


I had another shot at the Market Tray last night and I'm much happier with the result. The original test tray used 4 layers stuck together but it's hard to make sure they're all aligned and misalignment can snag cards when they're tilted. The last market tray avoids this by having the dividers vertically and keyed into the base but it's a bit slow to assemble. I compromised, this tray has a 3mm base and a 9mm top layer, by making the top in a single cut there is no snagging issue and I only have to align 2 layers together. All the names cut from 3mm and were glued onto the base afterwards to provide tipping points. These will go up in the shop in a few days time.
