This is my fourth cribbage board, a triple tracker. I use a paper template downloaded from the interwebs to lay out the 397 holes. I locate each one with an awl then use a twist bit to drill the individual holes. I take the template into BIG PRINT to size it. I then resawed a nice piece of Spalted quilted maple for the playing surface.
The box is Sapele and the bottom is some 1/4” MDF with a quilted maple veneer.
I used some of the box side off cuts to fashion a peg holder, the pegs have not arrived yet. I used to make the pegs but they are a pain in the neck so I buy them now. The little tray came out pretty cool when I glued the pieces together a tulip shaped flower appeared.
The Brusso hinges with stop were installed. These are really nice hinges. They went in with hardly a hitch.
The last photo is a shot of the felt bottom with the spray on adhesive applied. I covered the box to keep the adhesive off the sides. I glued it on and trimmed it flush. It came out pretty nice.
This is a late Christmas gift for a friend. He was bidding on another of my crib boards, that I had donated, at a church auction but could not keep up with the attorney that he was bidding against. I was pulling for him to win but the cost was well over its worth. The attorney is my godfather so I get the opportunity, occasionally, to play on that board.
15-2, 15-4 thanks for checking out my board.
