OK, this is my first original toy! I did not use a pattern from a magazine and all the parts are original, including the wheels! I used my experience from the previous plans that I used and kind of ‘winged’ it. I think it will be ok to donate to the District Legion’s cribbage tournament coming up this month! Enjoy….

That’s one sweet cribbage board. I love the idea of having the cards under the trailer. Awesome design.

Great project. I am sure it will be a big hit. Did you use a template to drill the holes.

That is way cool. However, you used every word in your keywords except for the most important one, ”cribbage”.

Neat, being a toy maker I might have to try one of these.

Toy for all ages, what a great idea! If you’d like to add to it, you could make a small “shipping crate” to hold the cribbage pegs while not in play.

Yep I saw that, I picture a young child wanting to play with this though…which could involve turning it upside down.

This is a great cribbage board! The card and peg storage is so ingenious, I have seen some of your other trucks on here, but this one is easily my favorite. Did you use anything special with the paper template to get the holes centered accurately? I have been doing mine this way, but there are always some that I get “off”.
