Our game boards are made of solid wood from Hard Maple, Red Oak or Black Walnut. They are ready to play or display! They are finished with an FDA approved Teak Oil which highlights the beauty of the wood grain. Our game boards are heavy duty and have deep holes to hold the marbles securely. All of our 18" and 20" game boards are available with pegs instead of marbles. If you prefer pegs please let us know in the order comments or by sending a message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
