Each and every board is made to order and will take from one to three weeks to complete. It is well worth the wait to get a handmade board created especially for you.
Backgammon is one of the world's oldest known board games. It's history can be traced back nearly 5,000 years to archeological discoveries in Mesopotamia. It is a game that is still played all over the world
The cherry and maple woods that I use in my Backgammon Boards come from a local saw mill run by the coolest guy ever. I purchase the boards from Mike and then process the boards from rough cut to the beautiful boards I offer to the customer. I examine each and every wood plank looking for great fiquring in the wood grain that will translate to a stunning board.
I work with both maple and cherry, I find that the cherry laser engraves with a darker color and maple with a lighter color .
Please be aware that every game board is handmade and each board will be slightly different and unique.
The finished board is approximately 17.5 to 18 inches square and it is hinged in the middle to fold in half. This makes storage much easier. It comes with a duck canvas storage bag and wooden pawns in their own bag.
Engraving on reverse at no additional cost.
