Carrom Canada's boards are the only ones made in Canada and are of the highest possible quality design, composition and construction. We make long lasting, heirloom quality boards that will live on in your family for generations to come.
The Walnut & Cluster Birdseye Maple Carrom Board is made of figured walnut surrounded by walnut strips and flanked with a premium Cluster Birdseye Maple playing surface.
According to Rare Woods USA, "Black Walnut has long been considered one of the US’s most durable hardwoods, and one of its most popular. Prized for its typically deep chocolate color (often highlighted by red or purple streaks and/or tint), straight grains (though sometimes irregular), fine texture and warm luster, the wood has an excellent strength-to-weight ratio and is considered to have solid dimensional stability after drying. Its cooperative grain structure and moderate density give Black Walnut excellent working properties, which have made it coveted by fine furniture craftsmen for centuries.
While there remains a robust domestic supply, the demand for this wood also remains constant. It is considered a premium domestic hardwood."
The board's playing surface is made of Premium Cluster Birdseye Maple and is thoroughly urethaned with a Beauti-tone Finish for exceptionally smooth play and a semi-gloss shine. The torsion box frame and base construction is one-of-a-kind in design, strength, and stability.
The board size is perfect for family play on a regular dining table which is no less than 30in across. Please note that this board is not a tournament size board. It is specifically made for family entertainment and is an excellent beginner board.
The board itself measures 27.4in across from side to side including the frame. The playing surface is 23in square. The frame height is 1.25in plus the height of the base which is 1.18in.
The netting on the board is secured directly to the plywood frame by the use of a strong metal wire. The base and pocket design is unique to our boards and cannot be found elsewhere. See photos for reference.
We hope you enjoy our handcrafted Carrom Boards and can assure you that they will be a blessing for generations to come.
