This is a seven ft by 15 in playing shuffleboard and 8 ft by 2ft total size. I used extra hardwood floor that my sister had left over from her kitchen project. Everything I used was 3/4 cheap plywood for under the playing surface and MDF 1/2 in for the sides. I used 3/4 runners to hold the cradle together. Make sure you do not use any tape for your markings b/c the simi gloss will not paint over it. Use either Sharpe markers or spray paint. Really wanted to make a bigger one but Couldnt due to the size of my basement. The pucks are not cheap, for a set of 8 the will coast you anyway from 60-120 depending on the size and name brand you want to get.

yea it was very fun project to build but the only thing is i dont have legs for it right now b/c I want to hang it
on the wall. so I cant find any table long enough to hold it without making it slant to the right on the ends little bit. But I’ll figure something out soon, Just might make three sawhorses to balance it out hopefully.

do you spread a little sand (is that what they use?) over the surface or is the glossy surface of the flooring slippery enough for the pucks to glide just right?

thats an excellent use of the leftover flooring. nice job and enjoy!
