This one is in a case form. Good way to use up scraps lying around.
I make the playing field with 1/8” thick lumber, and cut the triangles with a table saw jig. they are bonded to the substrate with marine epoxy.
After making a several boards, I had a bunch of scraps left over, which I stuck together and hung on a wall. :)

I guess I missed it in the earlier post. I just thought that you made a case for the backgammon board. It looks as if you did more than that. I apologize for underestimating your project. Wow. I love the joinery on this. This is a really nice project.

Thanks for the posts.
