Topic tags/keywords: table top bowling

Looking for some advice on a plan I have. Here is a pic of a table top bowling game I acquired.

Also a possibility is gluing up two pieces of 3/4 and then gluing them to the bottom.

I guess my question is, once it’s glued (tite-bond 3 I was thinking) Do my fellow jocks think it will remain flat? In general I restore antiques faithfully, but I feel in order to get the board back to playing condition, I need to take this one a bit further. I’ll probably use some kotton kleanser followed by BLO varnish on the inside to retain the patina.

I’d consider popping the sides and ends off and running a couple linear kerfs to add some give to the base then straight edge the bottom with screws before reapplying the sides.

-- I meant to do that!

Have your say...
