I received a request to make 8 domino holding boards. The sample shown was stained pine but the customer wanted pretty hardwood to be used and not stained. She chose Red Gum and Red Box Elder and I added Ambrosia Maple. They are 3/4” x 5 1/2” x 12”. The slots are .388” cut in 1/2” at a 15 degree angle with a wobble dado blade on the table saw. I looked up the size of dominoes and professional ones are 3/8” thick and standard ones are 1/4”. These boards will hold either.

They are finished with shellac.

Cheers, Jim

Very nice selection of timbers Jim.

Looks like we will see a run of boards now, no doubt Kelly is not the only one interested.

I made a couple of sets of dominoes 1 x set from Ebony ebony and a larger garden size for outdoors, but the sneaky grand kids memorised the pattern on the double six!

I was never able to buy the marble Insty bit bit in aust which is a shame as Big Al has one and it works well.
Enough prattle from me …nice project Jim!

Thanks you all for the nice comments. They play a game called Mexican Train They have a lot of dominoes in front of them at one time…hence the big boards!

Great looking Jim. They should hold enough dominoes for them.
