A handcrafted backgammon board continues a woodworking tradition stretching as far back in history as ancient Egypt, where senet, a board game thought to be an ancestor of modern backgammon, was played throughout the kingdom. Sets were often built from wood; King Tutankhamen had one made in ebony.
Today’s backgammon boards are crafted from a variety of veneers, and you’ll find most of them available in our shop. We’ve created a collection of hand-selected premium veneer game board packages, ready to cut and inlay, or you can design your own customized board using your choice of any of our extensive stock of wood veneers. Opt for natural wood for a warm, traditional appearance, or brightly-dyed or patterned woods for an updated, contemporary design.
Marquetry skills required.
