Hello! I haven’t posted in a while I have been working on some larger projects. I made this cribbage board I for my dad and thought it be good to share it. It is made out of walnut and oak, I turned the pins out of maple, Purple Heart and walnut. Thanks for looking.

-- I make bowls and spoons.

I don’t know about this game, but the board is very well executed.

Cool cribbage board. Nice job on the pins too. Those little things are harder than big projects sometimes.

Nice board and pins, Blue! I like the off center stripe. What finish did you use? Thanks for sharing.

That’s really cool and neat.
Great job.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Nice board! Did you have a jig of some sort for the hole drilling?

Nicely done. I have always wanted to make one of these. My mother and I use to play often, many years ago.

Thank you for the kind words. The finish is boiled linseed oil & shellac. I printed a template off the internet and went to town on the drill press to make all the holes.
