This Custom Cribbage Board is for sale by visiting this item at my Shop

The hard maple State of Montana shape was cut out using a Shopbot CNC router. The photo of the Griz is an actual photo of a Grizzly Bear cub taken in Many Glacier area in Glacier National Park. The photo was lasered in using an Epilog laser. I then used a drill press and my templete to drill the cribbage track.

Great job Splintes. Do you have the laser or did you contract that out.

Nice work, Splinters. Those lasers are intriguing to me. I wonder if the sign and graphics division (tiny little part of a international logistics company) I work for should have one somewhere in their arsenal. I wonder if it’s possible to get a tight shot of the grizzly?

One of the best-looking boards I’ve seen. I grew up amongst cribbage players, and everyone LOVED fancy cribbage boards.
Funny though, most play was done on the oldest, rattiest looking ones…

Nice! Can’t go wrong with the Montana or the Griz. Go Griz!
