This particular board is all free hand drilled. After finishing it, it dawned on me that perhaps a jig would be beneficial. Of course my next board began free drilled before it occured to me that it was such a pain with the last one, so I created a jig.

I’m with the rest on this… that is a great way to show off a beautifully figured piece of wood!
I too would be interested in seeing ideas for a drilling jig for boards like this. My wife and I play a lot of cribbage, and a board is on my list of projects to do.
