no previous part Part 1 of End Grain Cribbage Board Streets series no next part

The boards here aren’t finished, but the blog is about the inlay concept of the streets.

The basic idea is to glue up a board blank – similar to an end grain cutting board blank.

If you take your time and size things right – you can drill all the hole locations without fail….......

But first – the jig for inlaying the street – which is basically made from the real size of the glue-up:

The top:

The bottom – Make sure you mark a reference point when loading:

With Router:

After routing:

Chisel out the corners:

I routed 1/4” deep pockets and ripped the inlay just a bit proud of that – be sure to number the rips:

Pay attention to things here – you can book match the inlays and be be sure to orient the reference sides of the pockets the same way:

For drilling, I rigged up a simple jig using a scrap of MDF and a basic Incra positioner. Quick story, I used gauge blocks for positioning for each 5 peg segment and used the positioner to move to the next…....This was much faster than moving the positioner each row…..

Drilled blanks:

Many design options with this (I think)....the first batch will have pegs and cards stored below:

More to follow…....thanks for looking.

Thanks Dave – the hole drilling is a bit of a drag for sure…...I save that stuff for the morning when the coffee is still hot and the energy level is high! Not something to try at 3 in the afternoon…...
