This was a commisioned piece. Requirments were that it had to have a cribbage board and be a chest. Sure? I had to stand beside it for a picture so one could see the real size of it. The cribbage board “hatch” is held in place by rare earth magnets. Once flipped around you are ready to play. There is enough room under it for cards and game pieces. The sail area opens to reveal the chest. A buddy of mine, Lance and I tackled this. Alot of sweat, laughs, tears, and expletives made this happen.

is there enough room for a child to climb into the chest to play submarine?

Ahoy matey! Yankee sub off the starboard bow!

What size torpedoes does it use? :)

Great job, dude.

Ken,
Very nice work on this and everything else on your website. As a current submariner I’m always fond of submarine related projects. This is the largest I’ve seen yet and it’s functional! Thanks for showing us this!

Cool work. Distinctive and easily identifiable as a submarine. Nice touch on the details.

Cribbage and Spades were THEE games back when I was in the fleet….

Looks like things are pretty much the same.

Nice job on the sub….

Needs dring holders though :^)

Thank you all for your feed back. Missle deck was a thought. The hatches would of been the cup holders but it was an afterthought. As far a a child fitting in it hmmm…Only if they don’t behave. Lol. :)

Very cool. Reminds me of my Navy days :) SSNVet is correct. There is not a sub in the fleet that lacks for cribbage boards.

That’s certainly not something you “sea” everyday; great work and very impressive.
