Parcheesi Game (and Wall Art)

I used to play the Parcheesi game when I was much younger, now days it’s called Sorry or Aggravation.

I set out to make something that could hang on the wall as art when not being played. This was a project, that both my husband and I worked on together. I used the laser for the top game board surface, using 1/4" Baltic birch ply and then I inlayed various wooden veneers and shell to finish the look. I engraved the rules on the back and made a hole to hold the box for the game pieces and dice. Steve made the beautiful Walnut and Holly frame, the box for the game pieces and turned the game pieces – made from the same woods that the home spots are on the front.

Nice craftmanship. Laser etched???

A real piece of art! Brings back memories of family playing games. Thanks for posting.

This is scary, Terry – what planet did you come from?

This is really cool! Very unique, sure beats the crappy cardboard boards I use to play on!

Thank you all! After we finished this piece, I realized we are not quite done yet – in order to play this game, we really should add some kind of glass to protect the surface…

Beautifully done Terry. It reminds me that I told my son I would make him a backgammon board a couple of years ago, but still haven’t gotten around to it. Can’t you protect it with an ordinary finish?
