I am certain I mentioned before that I am still very much a beginner. I also have a lot of help from my kid who is 12 and can be a bit distracted at times. With that all up front here is a monster cribbage board that we made for a friend of mine. He and I play every chance we get and I know that he will love this once it is in his hands.

I acquired a big chunk of pine beam some time ago and had no idea what I wanted to do with it. We decided to cut off a piece and try this project. My kid drilled all the holes on the drill press and I routed out the storage on the bottom. My wife contributed by making the storage cover and offering some suggestions on how to clean it up.

As rough as this one came out I am still very proud of it and all of its flaws. Like my friend and myself – it is far from perfect, yet still works just fine!!

I hope you like this project and if you are interested please feel free to watch the build video below -

Nice job Brett. It’s not easy drilling the holes on these. Your friend will like it and you guys will enjoy some good games together.

Thank you @doubleDD – I think he will enjoy it as well. No those holes are a royal pain. But to be honest I think a lot of the blow out came from the type of bit I used. We used brad point bits and they are super aggressive. I think the next one will be done with a normal bit to see if we get the same issue.

Very good job ! Drilling the holes for C boards can be frustrating even with a template!

Try a 1/8” router bit with 1/4” shank. Chuck it in the drill press and it will not try to follow the grain like the drill bits.

Thank you Ralbuck!! I agree 100% on the frustration levels. But in the end, If I am making one of these it has to “mean” something.

SteveMI – That is a great idea!! I will have to try it out. Thank you!!
