My brother-in-law has a birthday coming up and my sister was interested in getting him a cribbage board now that he is retired. I used my CNC to drill all the holes (sure makes it easy to get them all ‘perfect’ – location and depth) and used my laser engraver to burn the duck design in it. I hope he likes it! I used some 3/4” clear birch a friend gave me. No stain, just clear coated…

I make cribbage boards and your take on it is really good. Only issue is that you are made for 3 players, but only have scoring for 2.

Hey Mike, The Cribbage board is awesome. I don’t have (and can’t afford) a CNC Machine. How much would you charge to make one like it with the Chevrolet Bowtie in the center?

I usually make round boards with 3D carved designs so the price is up there a bit.

I did this one as a test to see if I could get the cost down to something I could sell at the local Farmer’s Market. The laser engraving keeps that part under 10 minutes and I can use a photograph if my customer wants. I can pre-make a few boards using up my scrap lumber and just add the engraving as needed…

Thanks for your encouragement!
