Because my wife get’s was long overdue for a project I whipped this up for her this afternoon. It’s made from two pieces of Alder scrap with a coat of tung oil applied. It’s held together with magnets and the second is pocketed as well to accept a deck of cards and pegs.

Very nice! I’ve been planning for awhile now to build a few crib boards myself now that sales of my paddles is slowing down for the off season. Might have to make a round one now. Thanks for posting it.

I like what you came up with.. Great design and excellent build… very attractive presentation.

I’ve been trying to sketch out some design for a board… wife and I play… I tried a similar round style but couldn’t figure out how to set up the holes well enough to drill and to keep both players even in the streets. Thanks for sharing the PDF.

Great design. Nice build. Like the use of magnets to hold the haves together for storage.

Keep it up.

Great job! Never seen a round one before and I’ve played a lot of cribbage (aboard a navy vessel, it’s a daily routine).
Since there is no start/finish markings on the board… could be a never ending game! Awesome!!
