Shuffle Board

We came cross some really cool shuffle boards when we were at the game rooms stores looking to buy a Foosball table. After looking on the web for plans to build one, I came across GaryK’s shuffleboards web page.
( It’s a great page, lots of details and pictures of the build process. I’m quite the wood working rookie, but I was able to work through it. As you might guess, we are cheeseheads here, so I thought I put the football touch to the finish. The playing surface is made from MFD and is spray painted. Once we got the top leveled, it plays super.

Great board! I loved playing this game along with Foosball…. Sorry about your teams loss being a Raider fan i feel your pain. So she slides pretty well huh?

Most of the painting was done with spray paint. I spray painted the whole top white, the using painter tape, I covered the yard lines and spray painted the green field area. I cut out stencils for the “Packers” and the “G” and spray painted them. I hand painted the white outlines on the packers. Last I tape the red scoring lines and stenciled the 1,2,3. I put 3 coats of poly on it and then sanded it, I repeat the poly/sanding 5 or 6 times until all the surface were the same. then a couple coats of wax and some powered bee wax and I was read to go.

This is great.

The tribute to the one true football team is perfect.
