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.

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.

Sweet table! Fellow cheesehead here! Is the shuffleboard standard size or smaller?

This is great.

The tribute to the one true football team is perfect.
