The head professional at the golf course I work as requested a scoreboard for some of the bigger tournaments that we host. We went back and forth trying to hone in on what exactly he needed the scoreboard to do and I came up with a design.
Ash and Walnut make up the base, which is attached to locking casters so it can be moved around easily. This was my first attempt at using laminated joinery and I managed to pull off a fairly complex Japanese-style joint where the foot, stretcher and upright piece converge.
The molding around the board is shop made and secured with dovetail splines at each corner. The cork scoring surface is about 4' x 6' and has a tray for markers, a stapler or whatever else the pros might need while they are running the tournament.
Under the feet, there are holes which accept galvanized spikes. This is for setting up the scoreboard on grass and accommodating a moderate slope. I turned some pieces from teak that go around the spikes and fit tightly into the holes to serve as stabilizers.
There are two different heights the board attaches to the base at adjustable by putting the board on forwards or backwards. In the lower position, it can move through doorways for easy storage and in the higher position creates more visibility in the presence of a crowd if needed.
