Cut this cribbage board on one of my CNCs on Saturday for my nephew who will be retiring from the Navy in April. Can’t believe he is old enough to have his 20 in but have to congratulate him for his service. Thought if he got it for Christmas he might have a chance to use it with his buddies for a while before he’s out…

That’s some fine CNC work—I’m sure he’ll really appreciate it!

These are some pretty neat cribbage boards you’ve been posting.
How long does it take to set one up?
Is the bird from a scan or some pattern you call up/ plug in?
The lighting almost makes the board look like copper, what wood is it?
Neat, thanks,

Beautiful! I made a round cribbage board in the 8th grade. Drilling all those holes was a tough chore, and they were all over the place. Nowhere near as nice as this beauty!

Love this. What a terrific job you did. I’m also curious how long it took to create the design for the CNC. Looks terrific and congrats to your nephew.

Beautiful! More proof that I need a CNC machine.

Thanks for the nice comments! I enjoy playing the game so it’s nice to be able to make boards to spread it to others.
Mike & Bailey – If you already have the 3D models, you can put one of these together pretty quick. I modeled the eagle in Aspire as a Christmas present for a friend who was also Navy. I do a lot of 3D work and use ZBrush Core to build my models usually. I like Core as it was fairly cheap and I don’t need all the extra features that a full version of ZBrush offers. This was made from an old maple shelf I got at Goodwill for a buck. I shot it in low light (wanted to get a picture before it left) so the color is deceiving…
The drilling feature is the best part! Perfect spacing and depth in about 20 minutes.
Roger – Don’t do it!!! I was reluctant to cross over to the ‘darkside’ but now I have 4 machines of different sizes. It is addictive!
