domino / card holder for a game


Recommended Posts

I have a friend at work that asked me to make him something to hold up some dominos and cards for games that his parents and other relatives like to play.  I've made him 4 or 5 sets now, so they are pretty quick to make.  His dad especially likes the spalted maple wood that I use on these.  He has actually asked me to make him some gun stocks out of this wood.  I am afraid this is over my skill level.


The boards are simple 3/4" thick by 5" deep by 12" long pieces of wood. This project requires 6 boards.  


 I cut a grove at 3/8" thick and just over half way through the board.  I set my fence about 3/4" away from the blade and cut one grove, flip the board and cut another groove.  Now the two outside grooves are cut.  Then I move the fence over so the spaces between the grooves are the same and repeat the previous step.  I don't remember what this measurement is or I would list it.


Then  I round the edges on the router table and then sand to 220 grit.  


After that, I add some danish oil and I am finished.
