I just updated udandi's featured DIY project with my wooden game board turned tray.  

I had been on the look out for an old cabinet door that I could attach handles to make into a tray, but then I stumbled upon this wooden frame at the thirft store so I put on a clear coat and handles.  The notch on the back is great for hanging it up when it's not in use.

Total cost: $5

I absolutely love your tray idea!!  It's amazing the things you can come up with!!  

I always see those old metal chinese checkers "boards," but I never know what to do with them.  Now I do!!  I would just switch to a metal frame & use bolts.  Very awesome!  Thank you for posting!!

Love it!  I was just looking at game boards on eBay and was wondering what I could do with one. Awesome idea!

Here's another really cool project where you make an end table out of an old board game:

http://www.fleatique.com/articles.asp?id=1005

It comes from a book by Jennifer Knapp called:
Retro Revamp
It's such a cool book!  It's pretty easy to find in the craft section of a book store.

(The link above doesn't give credit to the book even though they scanned the picture from it and copied the instructions.  ...so wrong...  But anyway, that's what it looks like.)

Thanks ladies!


It's one of those things that I'd like to make more of, which means I'll probably have a hard time finding more wooden game boards Sad

There are so many great wooden game boards on eBay right now, but they're so darned expensive!

I love this one, but it's at $51 right now which is crazy.  http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3149284205&category=1184
