Running out of people I know that play Cribbage so this might be the last one for awhile.
Same basic design as my others, but I really like the wood combination.
Ambrosia (wormy) Maple, Curly Maple and Walnut. Finished with wipe-on Poly

Nice looking box. I keep seeing these cribbage boxes and I’m starting to think I may have to learn how to play just so I have a reason to make a couple. LOL

I love the design and proportions of it. I think you nailed it on this one. Thanks for sharing

This is one beautiful cribbage board!!! Love the wood combination….
Where did you get the cribbage pegs? I have been looking for some nice looking ones but haven’t been
able to find them.

I have a piece of ambrosia almost like this, I think I may attempt one of these.

thanks for posting !

I am looking to make one for my Grandfather. How did you make sure all your holes were precisely spaced?

Me too. If I could find someone who would play crib with me I’d make one of these. Nicely done though.

I’ve made several and find this jig useful
People who play Dominos also use this board.
