I made this cribbage board with a card / peg tray and inlayed tracks. The base and tray are Apple wood. The board is also Apple wood framed with black walnut. The tracks are inlayed Purple heart, Maple, & Teak.

That’s a really cool and beautiful piece! Nice smooth detail inside the card drawer.

Great design and build. I don’t think I have seen anyone alternate the colors of tracks-nice detail. The pull-out drawer turned out great. I have a cribbage board on my to-do list for Christmas for my brother-but that’s a few projects away.

Thanks or sharing.

Thank you all for the compliments. With a lot of figuring, and hesitation, this still ony took less than a week to make. I’m pretty sure I could build it in 2 1/2 days now that I’ve done it once through.

I have made some using red oak, but never thought to inlay a color. I kept telling myself a drawer would be too much work and you make it look pretty straightforward. Nice cribbage board.

Beautiful wood choices. Nicely done.

That’s a outstanding job you have done there. Beautiful colors and finish. Love the hideaway drawer too. What type of template did you use? I’ve made a few crib boards using a print out from the computer and spray adhesive.
Cheers!

I was fed up with the $40 “templates” so I bought a cheap board that I liked the pattern of and (double sided) taped plexiglas to the bottom. Then I drilled through to make my template.

Fantastic!
My aging father and I love to play cribbage.
This will be next on my project list.
Any tips?
More pictures would be appreciated as well.
