First off I would like to thank JL7 for his blog on End Grain Cribbage Board Streets.
I have been hunting for free pallets to build things out of and I was at my local lumber yard looking through their pile of pallets that the give away and I found what was either a pallet or a crate the was marked “Destination Boston” “Origination Malaysia”. So I’m not sure what species the wood is but some of it was spalted (if anyone can identify the species I would be interested in knowing). I had to use a forstner bit to hog out the streets for the inlay and as I was chiseling out the streets one side started to crack because I was too close to the edge. I had to put the cracked side on the inside so it was not visible therefore the board goes counter clockwise instead of clockwise. Even with it’s flaws it will make a great mothers day gift for my grandmother. The best thing about this project is that I took some wood that was destined for the landfill and made something of it. Thanks for looking.
