Hi everyone, I took a shot at making cribbage boards after seeing some of the ones done by others on here. I liked the swivel boards and decided to make them off of a four track pattern I got from Meisel woodworking. I made one in the past without a pattern for the holes and it was a lot harder. The pattern took about 45 minutes on the drill press with a 1/8 bit. I had some tear out problems but cleaned them up with the wood burning tip I used to burn the images and letters in the playing surfaces
Boards are 18L by 4 3/4W by 3/4 for the top surface and 18L by 5 1/8W by 7/8 for the bottom storage.
Tops are cherry, sycamore, and white oak. Bottoms are common pine stained with dark walnut oil.
The card slot and peg holder are lined with black flocking. ( first time using the product and had no issues.
Magnets are rare eath magnets a 1/2 in by 1/8 in.
Finish is spray poly.
I did all the burning freehand with a soldering iron type wood burner but broke the treads of a tip off inside so my wonderful wife ok’d an upgrade to the raze rip SS-D10 for the next ones I am doing. I promise I did not break the soldering style burner on purpose. It couldn’t have been better timing though.
Thanks for looking.
