This is what I made for my mom for Christmas. The scrabble board is made primarily of walnut, maple and cherry. It sits on a box with a lazy susan so it spins freely and the box stores the tiles and holders!

That is one slick looking Scrabble board, well done. I’ll bet mom really loved and will get a great deal of use out of it. How did you do the ‘lettering’ on the board itself?

The letters on the board were printed from a word document in reverse. I then used Gel Medium to glue them to the board. Once it’s dry you wet the paper really good and the paper comes off and leaves the ink. The tiles were made with a stamp set.

That is amazing! What a wonderful gift you made.

I have to admit that I would be tempted to make a few extra ‘U’s to hide up my sleeve for all those times that I get stuck with the ‘Q’ at the end of the game.

I actually glued together all the long pieces (maple and thin walnut) and then I cross cut them on the table saw and glued another thin strip of walnut the other direction. These are not individual pieces or inlay. I wish I would have taken photos of the process but I didn’t.
