This is the third of the game boards I’ve done. The design is done in Maple and Lyptus. The actual playing surface is hickory. These game boards are 28” across.
The story about this one is worth mentioning. A friend of the couple I made Board #2 http://lumberjocks.com/projects/27179 for is a director of a children’s home near here. Every year they have a large supporters and fund-raiser dinner in Dallas. They have presentations about the center’s mission and guest speakers ( This year, former Cowboys caoch Joe Avezano and SMU football coach June Jones were the speakers.). There is also a silent auction and the director asked me to make one for it. Here is the result. I had a stack of business cards with it and they all disappeared. I hope I get calls for more (fingers crossed). My fiends seem to think I will bacause a lot of people they know who were there like to play the game.
EDIT- Finish was three coats of Wipe-on poly
