Client knew I made cribbage boards and asked that I build him a cribbage table. Gave me a lot of latitude on material so I used red oak for the table. Inset board is made from fiqured maple and padauk. Finish is Old Master Natural stain and General Armor Seal.

I come from a family that loves to play card games. Cribbage was always a requirement at family gatherings so I can tell you I really think this is an outstanding effort.

Love it. I think I will make one for one of my buddies. Every time I go to their house we play cribbage.

The only way I can play cribbage is with the computer. I miss half the scoring it seems… probably why I’m not very good!

This piece is well done. I’m appreciative of the balance and movement. Good color choices and eye movement. Nothing overwhelms me and it keeps me interested! What was your inspiration? How long did it take? Any difficulty in making it happen? Your clients got a deal!
