Smile Shove Hapenny Board

My father in Law introduced me to the game of shove Hapenny earlier this year and I would like to make a board. Does anyone have any plans? It looks a simple enough project but I can't find the dimensions anywhere? Thanks

OK...I give.

That game must be unique to the UK. If you can't find the dimensions how do you expect us to find them? I've never heard of the game. Best to find a store there that has the board and make a tracing of the dimensions or pattern, then possibly we can help with the construction. bill

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

I've never heard of that game, but Google brings up lots of images of the boards. Many/most appear to be a solid board, but it might be difficult finding a nice stable piece of wood that wide. Dimensions I found on one site ( are approximately 55 x 31 cm.

The board itself looks easy enough to make, but I'd guess that the bulk of the work would be in the finishing so the coins slide smoothly.

If you make one, post pics!
