It's a great feeling when the long-awaited, much-anticipated game graces your table with its presence! Is that cherry or mahogany stain or veneer?

Yes it is a great feeling He calls the playing surface "Blomidon" and the ditch and rails are "Fundy".

...but no idea which "wood tone" puts the *blom* in Blomidon or the *fun* in Fundy?

The deck is indeed a nice tone!

Well, hello, Joel. A little FedEx bird has whispered that a certain board with mahogany-stained rails and matching disc box are on their way to me as well.

that is a beautiful board! I got a Fundy board, and I love love love it. I didn't even consider asking for the other finish for the ditch.

From Muzzies, for those that were wondering:
Quote:
2. What is the meaning of the board names? When we used the names of the stains people were sometimes confused and thought that our boards were cherry or mahogany woods, rather than all maple as our site states. We chose Annapolis, Fundy, and Blomidon because we live near the Bay of Fundy, on the mountain that forms the northern boundary of the Annapolis Valley. At the eastern end of our mountain, Blomidon, a clay bluff, juts out into the Bay, separating it from the Minas Basin. It is a beautiful part of God's creation that we get to call home.

The boards themselves are all maple, and the names they've attributed to their stains come from names of the surrounding area (Annapolis being the lighter natural looking stain, Fundy being the darker walnut-ish stain, and Blomidon being the redder mahogany-ish stain). I think it's a nice touch.
