This one is almost identical to the previous one, i.e., cherry wood, warm cherry stain, and semi poly. The difference is I used shellac as a sanding sealer on this one.

Beautiful tray. But I have to ask: Why is Michigan Rummy played with a tray that looks like a giant O – as in that arch rival school to the south O-H-I-O? LOL Thanks for posting.

I love this! It looks like the same game we called Rumoli across the river (Ontario). First time I’ve seen a wooden game board though. We played on a printed plastic mat. Haven’t played in years, but that was a family favourite 40-50 years ago. Thanks for the memories lol!

This one is going on my to-do list if you don’t object. What is the size of your game BTW?

Beautiful job! Do you sell these, by any chance? My mother absolutely loves this game and this would make a wonderful birthday gift. If you do take orders please email me your price at [email protected] Thank you so much!
