After showing someone at work a surfboard shelf I made for a friend, he asked if I would be interested in making cribbage board. After I asked, “What does a cribbage board look like?”, I looked around and got a few ideas. This one I believe I saw on this site, and made a few modifications. I told him just to pay me what I had in it, and tried to keep it cheap for him, so I decided to add the sliding lid in lieu of high end hinges. The tamo ash was left over and did not, i repeat DID NOT, in-lay well since it was so thin. I spent hours and hours perfecting the router guide to be perfect working from either side of the board. I made a lexan template for the drill press to set the holes. I made many mistakes along the way, but in the end it turned out pretty darn nice and he loved it. My wife jokingly said I should charge him $1 per hole ($376), but I told her I’d make twice as much if I charged $1 per four letter word. The top is curly cherry, box is curly maple, and the in-lays are tamo ash. I dyed the maple mixed with shellac to enhance its grain.
