Really nice looking board, although there don’t seem to be very many cribbage players around any more.

fifteen two, fifteen four and four….. your a winner. Great idea for gifts. Super job, I like the the base storage drawer for the pegs and cards. rtb is right…tough to find someone who even knows what cribbage is, let alone be able to play.
I fixed that and taught the other half and all my kids to play.

And one for the Right Jack!
I like the idea of the box underneath, with the Board on the lid. I’m thinking maybe the lid could be “flippable” so the Board would end up inside? Maybe not on a sliding one, but one with a detachable top? Hmmm…
Sheesh! They have templates for these? Now you tell me…
It does seem hard to scare up a game nowadays… I know plenty of people who play, but no one has the time…
Great looking build, Mike!!

Thanks guys.

Goose? be my guest :-)

Lc, the one I am working on now has the board as the lid and it is hinged to open. I have thought about your concept as well, the fun never ends…..

Nice board. What kind of jig did you use to keep make the holes?

Cribbage is not as popular now but this will also do for dominos.
nice jog thanks for the inspiration for my domino boxes.

Heels (two points on the cut card) or nibs; nobs, pone, muggins. Wife and I have started playing again… TV was boring. She beat me good last time… I’m still pouting.

Can I use your box design, but cheat a little and use a wood cribbage board that I have? Drilling out those holes (the streets, I believe) even by using a template that I don’t have, would be a bit challenging for me.

I might slim down the box stock… a bit thinner to keep the overall weight down?

An ideal small project for a small shop.
