Ok, I’ve scaled this thing down a little bit. I drew out the actual size I originally intended and decided it was WAY too big. So now the total length is about 18 inches. That makes the track 1” wide. That was a great coincidence b...

I'm trying to spend more time building, and more specifically finishing. I did a few shop classes in junior high school and built a few things. My dad always built things around the house growing up and so I began to appreciate what he did. His patience and precision have always amazed me, and I hope I can share those qualities some day. The only power operated tool he really uses is a table saw.
The last few years have seen me build a lot of rough things - storage areas at work, a new garage for my dad, working on the basement at a friends house, fences, retaining walls, a nice cedar deck. I'd like to get back to projects with more finesse, with more detail, and that you can have more satisfaction in making. I foresee a lathe in my future as well.....
So I spent two months reading this site almost daily before signing up, slowly inspiring myself to start building again. It's provided a lot of knowledge and inspiration to get back into the shop. I've already got several ideas lined up, and am looking for help. I like to push my boundaries and try something new, so I'll be looking to you LumberJocks!

As a recap in case you haven’t read the first post, I’m trying to build a unique cribbage board while keeping with the traditional layout. My idea, have an inlay for the track. Difficult & challenging? Probably. Fun and excitin...
First I’ll update you as to the the wood I used. I talked to my friend and he reminded me what we made it with. The sides and bulkheads are fir, with marine ply to skin them. And the plank (which I don’t have a picture of yet) is la...
I’ve got an idea to build my dad a cribbage board for Christmas. What’s going to make it unique is that I’d like to inlay the tracks with three separate species of wood into a nice maple base. So now the question is, how ...
