Pucket backgammon game serving tray
for my dear daughter.

To make projects for my daughter, is just about the best thing I know.
So when she told me she needed a serving tray, for her new apartment and had a backgammon on her wish list, I decided it was a chance.
It was just about at the same time I saw or LJ buddy doubleDD posting a pucket game and thought that would bee fun for drinking games, with her study friends (she study to become a Constructing architect), so I send you a thanks for the inspiration.
So now it was all about fulfilling her dreams and spice it up with a pucket game.
Of course I wanted it all in one piece, why not. ;-)


Playing with my daughter, this makes it all worth the work and I were a happy monkey that night.

This post is from the blog: https://www.lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/23377


Pictures:
1. Pucket game.
2. Backgammon on the back side.
3. Recycle old floor boards.
4. Making frames.
5. Turning a rod for the pieces.
6. Painting the backgammon side with wood dye.

Hope it can be to some inspiration, or even better, spread joy with kids or grand kids.

Best thoughts,

MaFe

Cool project.

Did you beat her? Or is that just another

pipe dream?

It turned out great . Maybe your daughter wanted to play for drinks? Either way is will be used for a few different purposes.

Hi there,

My dear daughter told me she played with her student friends also, so I am happy, they had great fun and she can now have her breakfast in bed also.

Ivan, Thank you Ivan, we had great fun, also played with a friend a few times and we were also completely there, having great fun.
Dave P, I also find the fact that it’s recycled wood, makes the joy even bigger. Big smile thank you.
987Ron, Laughs, in backgammon I bet her most of the time, in the pucket she is tough, I really have to put all my focus and energy to beat her, youth you know. Smiles.
mtnwild, Been a joy to have you follow and comment, enjoyed the conversations, thanks. It has already brought lots of fun.
Andre, Wauuu yes, perhaps one day, I can play with my grand children on this game, that’s a wild thought. Thank you so much for the kind words Andre.
Jim J, Yes quite proud the old fart here, that she walked in my footsteps, I would have been happy no matter what she choose, but this gives a wee extra joy, I have to admit. ;-) Cheers Jim.
Splintergroup, Laughs, big smile thank you.
LittleBlackDuck, Laugh. I do beat her in backgammon, 8 out of 10 times, so I’m smoking.
doubleDD, I can still drink a beer faster, so I’m still good, but I’m aware that it’s just a matter of time… Laughs. Thank you with a laughing smile.

Best thoughts,
Mads

.... LittleBlackDuck, Laugh. I do beat her in backgammon, 8 out of 10 times, so I m smoking….

Maybe if you hid the pipe and stopped smoking, she might be able to see the board and give her at least a fighting chance… or buy hes some Cuban cigars to even the odds.

Damn, I had a much longer reply but I think that my reference to beat would be miss-interpreted and offend too many!

Am I still allowed to mention that 5 letter word, baccy?

Always had trouble beating my old man a chess… and he was very old school European, dumb as dead dog shit otherwise… world smart, IQ questionable.

However, I gloat that after his passing, he’s had trouble beating me… at least, every time!

Sounds quite a lot like my father, I still remember clearly the last time he beat me, I were fifteen and threw him down a staircase, that kind of ended that part… But we never played chess, so that can’t be the reason, lol.
Sadly that kind of upbringing can be hard to loose, I still wake up with nightmares, tensions in the whole body and bathing in sweat once in a while, even though I’m more than fifty now. Kind of annoying, that it was not love he gave me, would have been nice waking up in the middle of the night feeling that instead. Smiles.
Well the most important is to change that line, so my daughter has been filled with love instead and I have chosen to pass on only the good sides from my old man, as much as possible.
Best thoughts and a good thought,
