This four person box style cribbage board was created for a client as a Christmas gift for her husband. It was made out of hard maple with an inlayed walnut strip. A light stain was applied to give it the darker look you see per request of client.
The board came with a set of custom metal pegs, a deck of cards, and set of instructions.

Lovely work Splinters. I especially like the walnut inlay. How did you like working with the hard maple? Keep up the excellent work.

I’ve thought about making a cribbage board recently. Did you use a jig to align the holes so nicely?

Thanks!

Thanks for all the comments.

Chad – I really like working with hard maple. Only problem I have had is when I tried to stain it for a client. That did not work as well as I would have liked, however the client loved it, so guess it wasn’t really a problem.
John – I use a metal jig I found online at Meisel Hardware. It works really well and you can use it to create your own different templates

That template is on my buy list. Did you make the metal pegs or buy them?

Have your say...
