What are Crokinole Discs made of?

Crokinoles are made of hard maple that has been wood turned. Our discs are painted with vibrant colours and come with a gloss finish. Our crokinole discs are manufactured in the USA and they are completely flat on either side. We used to get ours made in Canada but they had a nipple on one side which is actually a manufacturing defect. Now our discs are flat and slide very well. They are tournament level crokinole discs.
