This is the combo set I made for my son’s wedding to help them raise some cash. It was auctioned off during the ‘Jack and Jill’ party.

Board is made from Maple and Walnut
Base is Mahogany
Cribbage board is Mahogany
Checker pieces are Maple and Walnut as well.

Oh yeah… beautiful… think anyone could get the lid shut on their hand after pegging a big game countout winner? I’ve had a couple of games were the rivalry got a little, uh, intense. :)

I’ve got cribbage board on my list of to do’s… now do I attempt to do it with the checker/chess board integration? ... uh, not sure I’m quite that skilled, yet… give me time…

That’s a great game set, Don. Lot’s of versatility. I put it on my inspiration list.
