Made this for a customer who served on the USS Forrestal in the 60’s. The drawer is large enough to store a deck of cards and the cribbage pegs.

Looks good APGO and I am glad he survived that must have been scary stuff.

Fine looking cribbage board—I’m sure he really appreciates it!

Great project-I really enjoy playing cribbage. My dad taught me to play over 40 years ago-he was also ex-military.

Was your friend on board for the fire in the Gulf of Tonkin in July of ‘67? I have seen the video several times-scary stuff.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks guys ….. The most difficult part of the entire project was transferring the out of the ship to the board. I don’t own a laser printer, so transferring with an iron was out of the question. Ended up using graphite paper and painstakingly tracing the whole thing. Only then was I able to do some pyrography.

If anyone knows of a better way to transfer a pattern I’d be most interested.

My hat is off to anyone who served on the Forrestal. The fire they had in ‘67 was horrific and killed many.

Your fellow countryman John McCain was a pilot on deck at the time
The CO of the carrier initally refused to accept the defective ordnance but relented, then spent the rest of his career behind a desk.

OK check out this post

Humm seems the search feature doent work will try again later.
I am sure a inkjet printer will do the same it will print onto Tee shirts so timber should be no diferent!

Basicly its a transfer medium that retains the image and as you are after only inne images should work fine
