This is a gift for my niece on her 21st birthday. She saw a large checker board game being played with shots and wanted one. The frame is oak and some walnut, the game surface is pexi-glass with mirrored backing. I cut groves on tablesaw and circles with a forster bit just deep enough to remove mirror backing. Then I spray painted the back to let the color show through. It can be hug on the wall when not in use, displaying her shot glass collection. Happy Birthday and I hope you enjoy.

That is a really cool checker board!!!
I could have seen me playing it….
twenty some odd years ago.
I’m sure it will get plenty of use!!!
