This cribbage board was created out of Red Oak from some old oak I had come upon several years back. Had been holding on to it for the right time.

It has a spectacular grain pattern and gives an awesome appearance.

Overall dimensions of this board are 6 inches wide and 18 inches long,

That’s really neat! Do you use one of those templates from Rockler for the pattern? Very nice.

That board was too nice to put a bunch of holes in it! LOL. I think it will distract the attention of the players from the game.

How did you drill the holes? I agree, it’s a nice grain pattern.

Thanks…it is really nice to be a part of such a great group.
Mot: I used a metal templete from Meisel Hardware specialties with an 1/8 bit..Most times I precoat the surface with a couple coats of poly so the holes don’t split out on top..

I see you have made several Cribbage boards and having never played the game , do they all have the same number of holes in them and is the spacing crucial to the game ? Thank you .

Hi Dusty

Cribbage is a great game. It is used here in Montana as a tool to help 4th graders learn math skills and to endure the long winters. A cribbage game consists of 121 holes. All boards that I have seen have five hole groups. Thanks for asking..
