This board will be used in a hunting camp. It is 32 inches long x 8 1/2 inches x three inches thick and uses 1/4 pegs. It is a box type with the card and peg storage in the bottom. The customer plans to use bullets for pegs. It has been a real eye grabber at my markets.

Tks…the wood is a pine type, Blue board is given its distintive color by certain dark-colored microscopic fungi which causes a bluish or grayish discoloration in the sapwood of the tree.

However, not all blue stains are blue. Common stain shades can be blue to bluish black or gray to brown. Sometimes, the stain coloration in lumber may appear as red, yellow, orange, or purple.”

Man that’s a big one! Which explains it being in a hunting camp. All the beer and booz thats consumed it should be easy to get the pegs in the holes.

Beautiful board. I have a question, how do you get the holes so exact? I have.
A template and drill press but still have irregularities. Any help would be great.
