These exquisitely crafted game tables bring our appreciation of table shuffleboard to a whole new level.
We’ve stated this before: Shuffleboard is one of the best bar games going.
Once you know the basic rules of shuffleboard and have played a few times, you will understand why.
Now that more people are discovering shuffleboard in bars, it is also becoming popular as the ideal game table for the home or office.
Luckily, there are plenty of affordable shuffleboard tables on the market today. And many of the production tables are reasonably priced and of decent quality.
But if you’re looking to add more than just a standard game table, and truly appreciate how quality construction and attention to detail can enhance the game, you might want to learn more about a handmade or custom shuffleboard table.
Here, we’ll look at three examples of beautiful handmade shuffleboard tables to whet your appetite.
In my opinion, these shuffleboard tables would be the centerpiece in any modern-day game room.
And each table featured below represents a different design aesthetic: vintage mid-century modern, rustic elegance, and modern architectural design using reclaimed materials.
Plus, these tables are all hand built in the USA.
Common Features of Handmade Custom Shuffleboard Tables
Before looking at the individual tables, here’s a quick overview of some of the features these tables have in common.
Aesthetically, these tables are all beautiful. But it’s the materials and construction that make them special.
Unlike mass produced game tables made from composite materials, handmade shuffleboard tables manufacturers use solid materials like wood and steel.
Common types of wood for the cradle of the table include oak and walnut, while the playing surface is commonly made from hard maple. The base and rails are often constructed from steel or solid wood.
You may also find genuine leather lining the gutters and protecting the rails, along with unique finishes like specialty polymer coatings on the playing surface.
Most handmade tables are also made to order and customized with logos, different colors, and specific lengths to accommodate players looking for home, office or official tournament play.
Finally, as you might expect, a high quality handmade shuffleboard table comes with a hefty price tag.
If you’re looking for something of this caliber, be ready to spend from $6,000 – $10,000 as a starting point.
Now let’s look at three examples of beautiful and high performance handmade shuffleboard tables.
