Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless

I want to build backgammon board as college graduaiton gift for my daughter. All I’ve seeen are frankly just too “over the top”. However the one built by Sojka is amazing in its simlple straight forward design and strength of workmanship. I also like the one piece construction and lack of ornimentation. Are there plans or instructions available?

I used this blog as sort of a referance,, studied other game boards and pretty much made things to fit as I went. I knew what size I needed to reach, it was just a matter of trial and error. I did however make some jigs that will allow me to repeat the process. Good luck. I didnt see the “Sojka” board, where is it?

I don’t have a problem with dust collection and I have a fairly long black flexible to 4” steel tubing setup. I duct taped all the joints I could, but the biggest improvement (dramatic) was when I changed the upper filtration bag to a dust hog canister filter. My dust collector is a single bag jet approx. 1HP motor. Hope this helps. John
