Here’s a little Quoit Scoreboard I made for the group of guys I play Quoits with on Wednesday nights…. It just sort of evolved….as you can tell I had no plan….and I’ve never seen the origional Quoit scoreboard… but this one works…The scoring is done by moving the golf tees from the level where you see the golf tees to the top of the scoreboard….. the bottom level has a small bungee cord to hold the betting money…LOL… It’s made from 1X8 pine laminated stained and poly coated…. the scrolling at the top is just made of balsa wood… it took me about 5 minutes to scroll this piece…. and easily sanded…. Just a fun project..enjoy…

Hey Mike….

Quoits is a ring toss game for adults…LOL… I think the game originated in Sweeden and is played in Pa… I understand they even have college intermural games… Don’t feel bad…. It seems nobody knows of this game….

Thanks for the comment….

Great Quoits board. I just came across this site. I’m a huge quoits fan, but only play and sell Trenton Steel quoits.

We’re actually having a quoit contest soon. I’ll keep all posted on the details. Be great if we could have a huge turnout. Beginners are welcome of course.

Thanks!

Hey Rick…

I’m suprised that someone knows about this game….I’ve been playing for about 10 years… My old neighbor had a set…We used to play every afternoon…. I just teamed up with a group of guys that play on Wednesday’s… It’s been fun playing and fun making something that will be used every week…. I’ve never heard of steel quoits we have those hard rubber ones…. I would imagine that the steel quoits would be much more difficult… Do you use slate boards? Please keep me posted on your contest…. Next week I’ll turn the guys on to this site so they can see these postings… I”m sure they’ll be interested….

Thanks for the nice comments…

Hi Pete… Thanks for the info… I guess I should have looked it up so i could have given a better explaination…I wonder what the origional Quoit Scoreboard looked like…. Or do they even use one…? This was a project I attempted with no plan… I started making it and it just sort of evolved… The guys played last night and used the board….I wasn’t able to make it because of the holiday… I hope it worked well for them… I’ll find out today… One thing for sure.. I’ll help keep the score correct…. Now..if i can just get the guys to officially use the A and B Quoits I’ll be doing good…LOL..

Thanks for the comment…

Happy and safe woodworking..
