Acrylic shuffle board made from clear acrylic.
You can use any color acrylic or even make it out of wood. Since i had only clear in a 19inch length available, i used the clear, so i could make it a little bigger.

Now it's ready to cut and put together.

You can put the discs aside, since you won't need it till the board is glued together.

Start with glueing the back piece to the bottom piece. Then glue the bottom of the Middle piece (Bridge) to the bottom piece and the sides to the back piece/middle piece and bottom piece.

The top piece you can glue last.

Now your shuffleboard is finished and the games can begin.
