This is a Euchre counter and also Euchre kit for on the go Euchre players. I used brass and stainless steel pins for the score pegs. I also used magnets pressed and glued into the bottom along with steel pins sunk in the top to hold the two halves together. I put small rounded grooves along the sides to make it easier to open up the kit. Large holes in the bottom allow you to get the cards and the quarters ( which is what we usually play for ) out of the bottom easily.I made several of these out of different kinds of wood scraps I had laying around. This one is made of oak. Hope you like it. Thanks for looking.

Nice job!

How’d you keep the holes so evenly spaced?

I’d like to make a cribbage board about that size with 60 holes per half. One mistake and you got messed up holes – if you’re a neat freak like I am.

I don’t play Eucre. I might have to learn now…!

Hey, that looks nice! A guy I worked with made something similar although yours looks much nicer. Thanks for sharing. I bet the Eucre playing Lumberjocks will be copying this one.

Or the 5 and 5. But I know some people like to be over the hump when they flip it.

Euchre, a game similar to spades that is played frequently in the midwest and Canada. 6 and 4 are the typical cards used to keep score (add up to 10 points)

This is a cool project!
