Table Top Backgammon Board. This board is constructed from Tiger (Curly Maple), Paduke, and Black Walnut. I purchased the Walnut from the Amish in southern Tn. the Curly maple and Paduke from Dunlap Woodcrafts. Compartments are lined with Red Velvet.The board is set up for 1-1/2” Checkers. i I enjoyed doing the Project and would like your feed back on any improvement I can make. Thanks for looking.

This is above and beyond the call of making a backgammon board. Excellent work.

Nicely done. Have you considered making one that is hinged and can be closed?

Excellent job. I was going to include backgammon in my game table posted on here last year but couldn’t come up with a good way to make the board.
