Cribbage board coffee table. Much like the last one only as a game table. The last picture shows it before the holes. Made me think of the “Lion King”.

50” long, 25” wide and 22” tall. Beetle Kill Pine and western red cedar.

Big special thank you to Festus56 (Mark Heggum). I couldn’t have done this cribbage board without him.

Thanks for reading and all comments and suggestions are welcome.

Coolest cribbage board I’ve seen in a long time. Well done. Those legs are looking good too.

Fantastic looking Cribbage board table Monte. I really like the look of the beetle killed pine has a nice look.
I can see the lion! It also has a spooky face in it! Nice work on the legs!

Monte, I’m not into the game but the top of the table is fantastic.

looks great Monte. I’ll bet it was a tedious and nerve-racking task to drill all those holes into a table top.

He is supposed to come up with game pieces that we can put pegs in.

Nice legs Monte …. be you haven’t heard that one in recent years :^p

This turned out great.

Is the top epoxy? What’s the finish on the rest of the table?
