That is a beautiful game board – excellent craftsmanship! That’s a game I’ve always thought would be interesting to learn, but still haven’t got around to it.

Did a great job and the contrasting wood and inlay give it a nice touch.
I particularly like the Palisander and Poplar Veneers.

Well done.

This is totally on my todo list, and you have just put the bar SO high! I have to ask, what are you using for pips?

I looked at both of your backgammon sets. They sure are beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

Excellent work and materials I like how the book match was rotated to place the group of knots on each players right side, well balanced.

Beautiful work and the grain on every piece is gorgeous.Did you cut out those grooves for the pieces with a router? And what is your process for such clean inlaying?

Thank you very much for your comments.I hope to see soon and your Backgammon construction.
If I understood correctly your question for ’’pips’’ you mean backgammon checkers,
Now I buy from shops with these kinds of games, but hopefully soon i will make my own from wood.

Thank you very much for your comments. For the grooves i use one old shaper machine with a special knife that i have ordered with particular cutting groove. For the ’’clean inlaying’’ of veneer pieces, i places the veneers one above the other and cut two veneers together.
