I made this Go board while living in an apartment in the Washington, DC, metro area with nothing more than a soldering iron, a framing square, and a couple c-clamps.
Go is a game that originated in the countries of Asia, and is one of the oldest board games in the world. You can learn more about it here. Given my lack of a wood shop, proper tools, and really any woodworking experience whatsoever, I think it turned out ok.
