Not tall enough to stop you from taking one in the tooth.or eye. I can tell you that from experience.

At it's higher levels Crokinole is an incerdibly deadly sport.arrrh

It is a "sport" and not so much of a table "game", it falls into the same category as billiards and darts. A carrom/target sport.

An Hilinski rail is two inches high.

On the outside The thickness of the base board could change the overall height. My Hilikski rail is about 1" taller than the ditch and 1/2" taller than the deck/board surface - 1.5" total measured on the outside.

Note that Hilinski STARTS with a 2" rail, but sands it down.

I don't think he started your rail with 2". Try to sand down 0,5" from 4 foot length of rail and you will see what I mean... And a half inch above deck level seems pretty low, especially if you round the edges.

Anyway, I guess 0,6" to 0,9" above deck level is working well. So overall height would be:

Base board thickness + deck thickness + (0,6"-0,9") + sanding headroom.

So in the end I would just add 0,9" to the thickness of the boards and after sanding the height should be fine.

Edit: after building my own boards and making several experiments with the height of the rail, I found that 0,6" is the best compromise for me between a low profile rail and discs not going over the rail. So in the future if I will build another board, I will start out with 0,75" + board thickness.

According to this page, they use a piece of oak which is nominally 1" x 2", but which has a finished size of .75" x 1.5".

It's curious to see that the Hilinski's later state that their cut rail pieces are 1/8" x 2", but I'm certain (if they start with a 1 x 2) it's really 1.5".
