Here is a backgammon set I made for a lady out in California. I did the case in Macassar Ebony, and the points are Ebony and Tiger Maple with an Amboyna Burl field. You can see some of the veneers as they came from the best doggone veneer supplier around. I got a nice glossy finish out of some lacquer I had in the shop. It should be hard enough to stand years of dice rolling.
I love the game, so I got talked into building some of these sets for different folks. I’ve done three, and I must say that each has proven frustrating in different ways. This one made it all the way to the end, when I got a text message from the customer with a nasty picture in it (#6 above). Yep, make sure you insure those packages when you mail them out! I won’t say whether I had this one insured …
