Backgammon Table

A couple of months ago I received a commission from a young lady who wanted me to make a backgammon coffee table for her fiance as a wedding present.
I came up with this design:

When we were both happy with the design she chose the colours for the points - two shades of red. I then made the table from Ash and it came out as follows:

can you be more specific on how did you get those triangles so perfectly printed?
thanks..and how much do you charge for something like this?

Tony said...

Stefan,
They are handpainted but sometimes i use masking tape to get straight lines. I didn't want them to be perfect.
They are £399 for an Oak table
