Patio Scrabble

Obsession is the only way to explain how I feel about this patio Scrabble board. This set was made by pouring concrete into a wood frame and scoring it to create the lines on the board. Baseboard trim wood, precut, adhesive-backed vinyl letters, and wood stain were used to create the tiles.

Deck Boardgame

Create your own custom boardgame, using tape to determine the boundaries, and chalk to fill in each space with fun challenges, like bobbing for apples. A person tosses a giant die or hacky sack onto the board, and wherever it lands marks the challenge they have to complete!
