Shuffle board anyone?

The very talented husband of mine made this shuffle board for Christmas. Of course these pictures don't do it justice, but it really is beautiful. He made it out of Walnut and Maple.
Jim and the kids have had a lot of fun playing it. Coleman is probably the best competitor that Jim has. (Don't tell Dallas I said that) Coleman is just naturally talented in the athletic department. (shuffle board is a sport right?)
Is it an event in the Olympics? Because my little Coleman could start training!

OK I googled it, and Shuffle board is not an olympic sport...but many think is should be, since curling is...
There you have it....so stop on by for a game or two.

Wow. That's amazing! He's a magician... What you SHOULD google, is how much money you've saved by having HIM make this top-o-the-line shuffle board! Again, WOW.

Jane, the shuffle board is a beautiful piece of work. Although he hasn't done a project in a while, Joe enjoys woodworking, so I know the work and craftmanship that went into the making of it. One of our favorite things to do when we go to our cabin in Payson is to go into the little town called Tonto Village. They have a restaurant/bar there with a shuffle board. We love to have family competitions. In our family it is considered a sport! I bet yours will have many hours of good times using it.
