The great Crokinole project

What with my recent obsession with board games, I have come across a fair few interesting board game ideas. Once such idea was to build a Crokinole board. For those of you that don’t know (most of you I expect), Crokinole is a traditional Canadian game that involves the players flicking small wooden disks across a circular board, trying to land them in the high scoring centre regions. After getting my dad on board this project over Christmas, we went out to our local hardware shop to buy a large sheet of wood. Over the next three days, we cut, glued and sanded the wood into something resembling a Crokinole board. Here is a photo of me putting the finishing touches to the surface of the board.

In the end, I was quite pleased with how it all turned out. Needless to say, me and my dad spent much of the remaining time I was home playing Crokinole.
