My Father-in-Law made this cribbage board top for me over 10 years ago. We use it outdoors and it got fairly beaten up along the way. I removed the legs, which were plate screwed to bottom and refinished the top. I made the legs from rough-milled cypress. It was my first time working with cypress (I’m new to Florida). It is a nice wood to work. The only issue I had was some tearing when I chamfered the through tenons. The legs are now tenoned (1 1/2” cube) into the top.
Now I have a nice place to set my beer while sitting by the pool. Next step is to makes some turned pegs, for which I’ll need your lathe Betterman.
