Glad you asked that question. Being a Cribbage player I to am working on plans for a Cribbage/Puzzle table. My idea or thought to this is pretty simple. Being that 29 is the ultimate hand one can get. I plan to design my peg holes in the numbers 29, with inlay outlining the numbers and division of the five hole segments. Making it a 3-4 man board. Also turning the pegs so they are large with 1/4” holes for the pegs. If that isn’t to your liking you could also design it to his favorite sport or activity the same way.

Cribbage! I play that card game often with the wife. Taught her how and she can beat me on a regular basis!

I was thinking 29 as well. What ever design you choose, I’d like to know how you are going to keep all those tiny holes in line. I have considered making my own board, but keeping the holes aligned has flummoxed me.

An aside, I’ve gotten a 28 before…missed the Jack. Rare and few between….

I have been playing cribbage for 40yrs. My father and I taught each other how to play when I was fresh out of school and my father retired the same summer. Great card game for young and old. I am working on my third table. I use left over hardwood flooring finished or not. My measurements are about your size. I went with a straight peg track for ovious reasons. 60 up and 60 down. My track board is set diagonal to the players side for easy reading. Along with quarter inch dia. stainless #16 nails for pegs. You don’t have to squint to count your points. All my friends love them and want to play alot more cribbage than most do. Now that I signed up. I’ll try and send some pics. Something I let my sons do. Hope this is’nt a distraction on a project started.

Have your say...
