This classy board is made of richly colored solid walnut. As the original piece was made for a resort in Nevada, I gave it a little wink and a smile with teardrop shaped points with playing card suits in hand applied gold leaf (which, by the way, represent wind, fire, water, earth)

I finish all of my pieces with several layers of carefully hand-applied clear resin (which requires several days and alot of skill to get it just right!)—allowing a real sense of depth and dimension from the points I create—while imparting a smooth, glass-like, yet resilient, playing surface.
