This is a project that I built a few years ago for a Christmas gift(s). It is a Crokinole board (a game kind of like curling and shuffleboard), that is popular here in Ontario. I followed closely the plans laid out by Carl and Stan Hilinski, expect I was unable to pull off the round boards and settled for the octagon. It is a great game for kids and a very fun woodworking project – check out how beautiful some of the boards are that the Hilinski’s have made:

Nice job! Thanks for the link. I checked out their tutorial which is very thorough. Being from Ontario I of course have a board already but I’m saving that link in case I need a future gift idea.
