These are two cribbage boards I designed and made as Christmas gifts. The lid slides off to reveal a place to hold a deck of cards and the cribbage pegs. The front board is made from Walnut, Cherry, Maple, Jarrah, and Zebrawood. The second board is made from Walnut, Cherry, Maple, Sapele, Purpleheart, and Osage Orange.

I have a series of build photos with descriptions available here:

Very pretty combination of woods. Well done! From the photos it looks like you may be a playing card collector as well? I may just have to try making one like that.

Great looking cribbage boards! I’ve never played the game myself, but might have to with these beauties!

well done on the boards. I also like your wood selections. Any cribbage player would be thrilled to have one of your fine crafted boards. Are you also a player? My grandfather taught me the game 60 years ago to help me with my additions in math. Made math fun and gave me time with grandpa, love the game to this day. Oh my grandkids are also learning from gramps. When I can pull them away from the electronics.
