Did you get this from a pattern? I tried to make one once….but I couldn’t keep the holes straight and even…certainly can’t “eye-ball” it. I’d like to find a pattern to make one. That’s a really nice table and it’ll be great to play a few games while sipping on something cool!

Very nice indeed Jim, Cribbage is our favorite game and it would be a pleasure to have a table like that. I think I will borrow your idea and come up with one for the Misses.

Looks nice! I made a circular cribbage board in High School…uh…40+ years ago. Those holes were all over the place! You’ve done much better, including the finish. We used to play mass quantities of cribbage when I was a kid.

Prez….....Rockler has a cribbage template available for around $30…..for standard size board…......but it could probably be enlarged for any size playing surfac

Looks good! I’ve thought about making one of these, but I don’t think I’d have the patience for drilling all the holes.
