A fun little project. Plywood, walnut frame, oak dowels, green felt, gloss poly, wax. These will go to the winners of our corn hole game at this years reunion in July. Thanks for looking.

Smitty .. pucks can be purchased from Amazon. Do a search for tabletop shuffleboard pucks. Thanks.

These are awesome. A blast from the past.. I had one of these when I was a lad.. The great toys always seem to resurface.. The puck storage is quite ingenious, I can remember having to store the pucks in a plastic bag. Thanks so much for sharing.

This is on my to-do list. Off to buy pucks so they’re ready when I am…

Awesome. My buddy has the straight version and it’s a blast – it’s our cornhole in the wintertime. I need to make one of these, thanks for the inspiration.

This is a wonderful recreational table and you’ve done a fine job on it. I’ll bet you had a lot of fun doing it.

I’ve never seen the banked version like this. Only the 16 ft long ones in bars. How long did you make it, 8ft? Looks like you used 1 sheet of ply for the dimensions of both?

Each game is 48” long x 18” wide. Frame and center divider is 3/4” thick material. Plywood bottom is 3/4”. Plywood top is 1/8”. Dowels are 3/8”. Rubber bands are 1/2” wide. Pucks can be purchased online, do a search for tabletop shuffleboard pucks. the ‘bank’ angle is 90 degrees. The score zone dividers/foul line are 1/8” x1/8” inlaid walnut. Numbers/lettering is stenciled and pen painted. Hope this helps you all.

Ah man, I wish my family were more into games, I’d build one of these in a heartbeat. Nicely done.

Great job! That’s the kind of prize that will be prized for a long time to come. : )
