Made this cribbage board for my grandfather who will turn 90 in March.
He taught me to use tools as a kid and how to play cribbage.
Several months ago he sent me some planks of walnut. So, along with some maple, I decided I’d use some of the maple he sent.
The peg path as well as the top are both made of walnut though obviously of two very different colorations.
The box frame is maple.
The contrasting splines are walnut.
The bottom is a piece of poplar that I resawed and then handplaned down to about 1/8” (first real use of my refurbished handplane).
The peg track is inlayed, with relief, into the top by about 1/16”. The routing was done freehand. The peg holes were drilled using my DP using a 1/8” brad tip bit, however, other than a printed template taped to the wood, no jigs or such were used.
The finish is BLO and wax.
The pegs were as much apart of this project as well but due to the complexity of making them I’ve included them as a seperate project entry http://lumberjocks.com/projects/62308
