This is a cribbage board I made for a friend. It’s made from a piece of quilted maple and finished with a tinted poly.

Very nice board. In the cavity on the reverse, did you use a template and router, then a second template for the deeper cavity? Is the cover held in place by just a screw?

That’s a beautiful board. Did you use a template for the peg holes?

Thanks for the nice comments! Yes, I purchased the template from either Rockler or Woodcraft, it was a while back. The kit comes with the template for the holes, the playing pegs and the centering drill bit which is also set to the exact depth you need. VERY SIMPLE project to accomplish quickly with the template.
The cavity on the back is made with a simple template I made out of 1/4” plywood and I used a straight bit on my router. The deeper cavity I just drilled out with a forstener bit (two holes slightly overlapping) and used a chisel to clean up the edges.
Yes, the cover, which is just made from a small piece of scrap walnut, is just held with a small wood screw.
Thanks again for looking.

What size are the holes and how deep are they drilled?
