Have got the dominoes, now need a board to play the game on. Having just dismantled a cheap gateleg table, I now have 2 leaves, with rounded corners. The appearance of the wood looked like plywood with veneer, but when cut to size was actually chipboard.
I intend joining the two halves with dowels and probably finishing it off with a sheet of hardboard which will get varnished, followed by framing the board with a slightly raised lip to stop the dominoes falling off when shuffled. The other side may just get painted.
Have taken delivery of two sash clamps and now just waiting on the dowel tool and dowels.
