This is a nice project, Mike. I like the design and you chose a nice wood combination. They compliment one another well. Integrating the board and base together so that the peg and card storage areas are hidden was a great idea.

Thanks for the post.

This looks very nice. My wife has been bugging me to make some of these and I’ve got to tell you, this is the plan I’d use. I like the idea of a compartment for the cards so everything stays together. Very nice job.

Thanks Mike -

I have made some cribbage boards out of wide wine barrel staves. I tried to make my own paper pattern and use my drill press, but I usually make at least one mistake. I will look into the pattern/template on that website, it will make my life easier. If you think of a way to incorporate your design using barrel staves, we should discuss. I have a few ideas as well.

Thanks again.

Nice design, I’ve known a few cribbage addicts over the years. That’s a good one. Thanks…........

I’ve never received a confirmation email from your link so that I might sign in there. It’s been a week now . Is anyone else having this problem ?
