This is a set of simple cribbage boards.

1st is ash w/ cherry
2nd is ambrosia maple w/ mesquite
3rd is ash w/ mesquite
4th is cherry w/ ash

Finish on all was 2-3 coats TO/MS/Gloss Cabots 8000 follow by ? coats MS/Gloss.

They all measure about 4×12 inches. They’re pretty simple to make, but drilling all the little holes can be a pain. I use a drill press and adhere graph paper to space the holes.

Next ones I build will include storage for a couple decks of cards.

Thanks for looking.

-- Tim, trying to come up with something cool to say here!

Good idea for a project. I wish more people knew how to play this great game.

I used to play cribbage. I wasn’t any good at it, though. These boards all look wonderful. The second one is pure beauty!

I love me some cribbage. I think I may give these a whirl after I try a backgammon set. Only problem is that it is so easy to have the computer count for you. I think card and peg holders and some other accoutrements would sway me back to the “manual” version. Great job on the boards.
