Two cribbage boards I made for a work fundraiser for a co-worker who has a small child that has been diagnosed with Lukemia. Was trying to think of what to make and realized that there are a number of hard core cribbage players at work who are serious about the game. To go along with the boards, I made the custom pegs from stock 1/8” steel and brass rod (shaped on the drill press with files and sandpaper). Boards are birch with sides of mahogany – first board has a cherry curved inlay and cherry and mahogany plugs for accent. The second board has a middle strip of purpleheart. Finish is clear shellac. After the job was completed, I treated myself to a glass of 15 y/o Scotch!
Thanks for looking.
