Once again a simple cribbage board for my dad for his birthday. You wouldn’t believe how many panels I made until I got the angles correct. But once you have the blocks set and the compound angle set on the saw you can make panels all day long. Also, when placing the magnets you have to align them to the opposite one. This means there is only one correct way to put the dodecahedron together. Thankfully I realized this before I placed any of the opposing magnets, otherwise it would have been back to the chop saw. Mahogany and Cherry with a tung oil finish. The magnets are neodymium. It isn’t the most compact board but fun to make anyway. I have to give credit to the website that I found the picture on because it wasn’t my original idea. I just made it my own.

Thanks for taking the time to look.

Dude that is awesome!!!! I could only imagine the angles were a nightmare to work with. It could make great bookshelf art until someone wants to play!

WOW! That is great. I will have to try this. You did a great job. I have plenty of scrap wood to practice the angles on. Once again, great job, and thanks for sharing.

@kevbot – that is exactly what my dad does. He tells me they are works of art and not to be played with. At least I had fun building it.

@farmerdude – I used the measurements from this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PLUer14w708 There was still some trust issues from my end so I cut a bunch until I believed him.

@htl – from scratch. lots of scrap plywood used until I got it right.

Thanks for the compliments!

Wow, well done! I thought (for about ten minutes) about making a dodecahedron for the upcoming box swap, then came up with a design I’ll hopefully be able to build without spending all of the next two months in trial and error.

What a fun project for a cribbage lover – and I one or two of those…
