For your viewing pleasure… a scrap piece of maple, transformed into a cribbage board… Inlays include purpleheart, lyptus, and osage orange. All holes were free handed on the DP (thats why one side seems to wander) Getting better at inlays I think. These are all hand cut and chiseled. Thanks for looking.

Quit calling it practice, you know hoe to inlay! This looks great. Nice and tight seams and a real pretty contast in your wood choices. Thanks for sharing.

Very nice. I’d be happy to get that result with a template and router kit. Been meaning to do a cribbage board for a while now.

My parents and their friends used to play cribbage all the time when I was a very young. Nice project.
