This board is 16×22

Curly maple, walnut, birds eye maple, and gummy cherry. I had a lot of fun learning on this one. Lots of things I have never tried. If you ever want to try this, GaryK does a great job laying out the steps.

Very nice! I would almost be hesitant to play on it, it is so nice.

Impressive. You say that GaryK has the procedure. How do I find him?

That’s really nice! The woods really pop. I will have to add this to my to do list. I like to play Backgammon although it doesn’t seem to be as popular a game as it once was . With boards like yours it may have a resurgence. Thanks for posting.

Bill, I am really impressed with your productivity and variety. This is quite nice. I was wondering if it would have worked to have a continuous hinge mounted on the inside of your joint? Thanks for sharing this with us it is well done.
