This is my first attempt at a crib board and I am pleased with the result. Lots of firsts on this one for me. First hard wood purchase from PJ White’s in Edmonton, first use of the jointer and planer at my brother-in-law’s place and few other lesser firsts. This will be a present for my Mom this Christmas. She and I used to play two games of crib everyday at lunch when I was growing up and it was a favorite game of my Grandpa who passed away earlier this year. I am sure there have been thousands of games played in my family over the years. As for the board I sanded only the face and left the back side uneven and rough just because I liked the way it looks. I used a gel finish and some 000 steel wool and bought the pegs from Lee Valley. Thanks for looking and may God be gracious to you this Christmas. Cheers

Very nicely done. Your mom is going to enjoy the gift from your hands; and it will bring back all those memories as you grew up. A better present a mom couldn’t have, a good son! Thanks for sharing.

Nice Board.

I have been considering- unfortunately, for several years already—making one from a tractor shape going aroungd the wheels for peg holes. Have NOT done it yet!

Maybe one of the L-J’s will show me how!
