Using the plans from http://woodgears.ca/crokinole/index.html, I build my first Crokinole board last weekend and, after careful polyurenthaneing, it is ready to play! I didn't have the equipment to make splines nor the time to make tenon joints, so I used a Kreig jig instead and fastened the pieces for the ditch with pocket screws. Here are some pics from the build and the finished product:

Awesome! As an owner of a hexagonal Croke board, I love it.

That's awesome! How does it play?

I really want to make my own at some point...

Brought it along to game night last night and it played great! No noticeable bumps or rough patches on the surface. Discs were fast without being slippery. I was more than pleased with how it turned out.

Nice work. The edge looks almost level with the deck. Have you had to chase a lot discs sailing over the edge or does the generous size of the ditch cause them to drop enough and stay inside?

It hasn't been a big problem, but it does happen on occasion. That is one change I'm going to make on my next board.
