Crib board in cherry with a walnut drawer. Space in the drawer for a deck of cards and the pegs. Drawer is lined with cloth and has solid wood banding on the front as well as a brass knob. Holes were drilled on my drill press. Comments and critiques welcome.

Very nice and functional as well, just bought a slab of cherry and looking forward to working with it, the one wood i’ve never really used.

Beautiful. The drawer is a great feature. That must have been a lot of planning.

I like the idea of the drawer – as others have said, very practical. Some accurate drilling there, to a very pleasing pattern. The rounded sides are also a nice touch, and the drawer with its banding will draw a great deal of admiration, I’m sure.

Thought I’d share if anyone else was wondering:

The drawers are just mitre joints with a rabbit for the bottom. I used a plywood bottom with fabric attached on top with spray adhesive. I glued the bottom in because it is small and plywood. There are small dados for the divider. The banding was installed on the front with my router plane. Just scored a line and then removed the waste with the plane. Glued the banding in and scraped it level. The opening was made with a router before the two halves of the board were glued together (if it isn’t obvious the board is made of two planks). Hope that helps.

Don’t know how I missed seeing this one but as a maker of the occasional cribbage board I’m always looking for good ideas and really like the pull-out drawer. Definitely going to have to try doing one that way!! Thanks for sharing…
