My lumber jock brother, Rico, and I made two sjoelbak games for a friend of his daughter. I helped with the construction and making the 60 pucks. We used prefinished 3/4 in birch plywood for the bottom and solid sugar maple for the pucks and the trim. The gates are made of cherry and teak plugs were used for accents. Finish is my favorite, Deft, have been using it for years even though it is hard to get in some parts of California.

Nice build and it looks like a great game too. I was trying to figure out why the point difference between the gates. Are the lower point holes more difficult for some reason?

We had this game at the chinatown recreation center in San Francisco, in the 60’s. Never knew its name. Thanks for posting. Brings back memories…

Looks like a fun and challenging game. Great build on that good looking board.
