The plans for these were in an issue of Canadian Home Workshop a few years ago and I made one as a gift for my grandmother (the only one who can consistently remember the rules for cribbage). The game board is birdseye maple and the base is walnut. She loved it and has gotten a lot of use out of it so I am going to build another one for my parents cottage. I’m thinking of a birch top with cherry base for the next one.

Finish was wipe-on poly.

Was the hole pattern included with the plans ? How big is this unit ?
You did a great job on it : )

Geeze Jeff….you could’a at least mentioned that the project designer/writer was a fellow Lumberjock…... :D

J/K, I’m just jerking your chain a little…... its great to see my stuff actually being built instead of just read! That was actually one of the very first projects I did for CHW…..and even after doing a hundred or two more, that’s still one of my favorite project articles.

You are 100% right Ryan, you deserve the credit. I’ve only been on LJ for 5 days so I didn’t even know you were on here.

Like I said, it was a fun project and very well received by my grandmother. My only complaint is that I was going cross-eyed from drilling the three hundred and some odd holes (I guess there’s no way around that). Next time i’ll do a hundred, take a break and come back to it.
