Topic tags/keywords: shuffleboard table shuffle board plans

I am looking for help or plans for building a 12 ft shuffleboard table for my man cave. I was laid off the week of Thanksgiving and it has been difficult and very stressful to find new work through the holidays so I was thinking that a project with my son and daughter would really help with my sanity right now. Christmas wasn’t the best for the kids this year so I really want to get them involved in this with me. I really don’t have a ton of money to throw into this project so I am looking for something on the cheaper end but looks nice. Any and all advice and or help with this would be more than appreciated. I do participate in bbq competitions here and there over the years and I would be happy to trade cooking tips and secrets for any help. Thanks!

To really build it right you would need nice hardwood like Maple and you could inlay the lines and number with walnut. That being said, is expensive to build. You can build it out of common Pine lumber fairly cheap and just paint the details on the table. You can seal it with a half dozen coats of water based poly and that will give you a very hard, smooth surface to play on. Hope this helps. Dan
