I really enjoy playing backgammon, and this is now the third one I’ve made. This is a travel size model and was a lot of fun to make. I chose curly cherry for the board, and bloodwood for the dice cups. I didn’t realize until I uploaded these photos that the pictures didn’t turn out very well at all. I’ll try to get some better ones and add them. In hindsight, it’s a shame I used the curly cherry on such a small project because there isn’t really much area for the figuring to stand out. You can’t see it well in the pictures, but the bloodwood dice cups turned out quite nicely, and the piece from which they were made was quite lighter in color than other bloodwood pieces I’ve seen.
Overall I’m really happy with the results. Thanks for checking it out.
