This Mancala board was made from a solid block of North American Cherry. Wood artist Paul Szewc of Guelph put his own flare on a traditional game.
The cups are easy to scoop from and you can easily see how many gems are sitting in each cup during play. Each cup will hold 22 gems comfortably, which is deeper than standard boards available. (Gemstones included but could be a different color than the photo).
The board is sprayed with sealer then sanded again and then sealed. This creates that smooth-to-the-touch finish. This process is the same as what a high quality piece of furniture receives. It is very durable and requires no care. Simply wipe with a damp cloth if it becomes dirty.
There are machine marks which you can see but this is the look we wanted. It gives the board a textured, organic look, similar as to the boards played on hundreds of years ago.
The playing gems are included with the board and the rules have been laser engraved on the back for handy reference.
This solid board will outlast you! It is another heirloom game to be passed down to future generations.
Our goal at Masterpiece Lasered Wood is to provide you with the best quality product we can. As wood is a natural, living product sometimes its grain and texture can get a little unruly. Knots, streaking, and other flaws in the grain can occur during the natural growth of the tree. We at Masterpiece Lasered Wood, home of the famous “wonky” furniture design, believe these qualities add a uniqueness to our product rather than flaws. We do, however, try our to best to ensure every product we create is free from large, unsightly markings and deformities in the wood but cannot guarantee they will be free of minor flaws. If you are like us and LOVE some rebellious wood grain or an interesting knot here and there (as long as it doesn’t interfere with the use), let us know and we will try and dig up something special for your tastes.
