« Part 47: Parqués...Cont'd Part 48 of Life as an Amateur Woodworker series Part 49: Scrap Coffee Table »

It’s amazing what you can do with masking tape and a few cans of spray paint, once that bit was done, I tried stencilling the words onto the board, but you wouldn’t have been able to see them at night, especially those family members who had had a snifter or two!! So I printed address labels, stuck them on the board, and sprayed varnish over them to seal them, before applying a few coats of brushing varnish.

That done I applied the mahogany trim and voila! we are ready to play, now I just have to learn the rules :)

Now make a table frame to set it in? Nice job!

Thanks Tom, it did go through my mind, but we play in two or three different locations, where the frame would just be in the way, so that saved me a job.

Now I’m finishing off a new set of bunkbed ladders, they have to take the weight of the Mother-in-Law…I’ll leave a screw or two out ha! ha! :)
