I made this when I returned from visiting my parents, I realized I did not have a cribbage board at my house. I glued up some walnut and birch and started drilling holes with no real plan. I managed to fit all the required holes and did a small inlay for the winner. I finished it with a few coats of shellac, my first time using it.

Great job, Nugs! My father used to play Cribbage all the time and taught me when I was a kid (many years ago!) But I lost interest because it seemed whenever I was winning he would introduce some rule that was previously unheard of! LOL
I’ve often thought about making cribbage boards as a way of using up scrap pieces of timber, but could never remember how many holes had to be in each board? Can you enlighten me?

One of my Naval buddies finally showed me how to play this game. In the Marines we normally just play spades during our down time. This is a great board and something that I am going to attempt in the future.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks guys.

Scoops, cribbage has a 121 holes, and you’re right it’s a great use of scraps.

Have your say...
