Crokinole Board by Muzzies
The first board I ordered arrived from Nova Scotia today. Sue shipped the board only 6 days ago, not bad for international postal service.
The board is maple plywood with a Red Chestnut stained playing surface, and clear poly for the ditch and rails. Murray and Sue do excellent finish work, and the brass screws have brass sleeves that make me wonder if I want to use the included rubber sleeves on the posts.
Unlike many boards, the Skalings also finish the back of the board and even make a keyhole for hanging your board. These nice touches are indicators of the pride in their work and the attention to detail of the workmanship.
The playing surface is immaculate and finely finished. Muzzies boards have painted lines. I believe each concentric ring actually thickens slightly. Its a beautiful board. I'll have to get back to you on playing differences.
