CRIBBAGE!!!! No picture No picture No picture No picture No picture
Zoom Pictures

I made this cribbage board for the guys at work. I’m in the Navy and work in an office mainly with retired Marines. They play cribbage everyday at lunch. They had the standard small Wally World board. The board is paduke, with maple 29. The start and finish is Purple Heart and the point markers are wendga. If you make one and a novice like me sand don’t use a planer to smooth you’ll have some chip out with the cross grain. Lesson learned here. Fun first inlay project.

That is a nice piece! You are right, the planer is not a Fine Finish tool – try a drum sander if you have access to one.

It looks good, unique, very well designed. Love the wood combo and the finish too. Great job!

Nice board – I always wonder how the pegging holes get drilled… Did you have a pattern or did you just lay them out and start drilling? I assume you used a drill press? So many holes to drill a jig or pattern would be helpful, I assume?

Again, nice board you do good work. Thanks for sharing it.
