So this cribbage board has been bouncing around my shop since March 2009… I started working on this when I first started getting into woodworking and my ambition kind of out paced my current skill level. My initial goal was to finish this in time for Fathers Day 2009, but I missed that goal by a little bit!
There were a variety of reasons that it took four years to finish this project; having twins, buying a new house, putting a 1/4” chisel through my index finger which healed up nicely :), etc… but about a month ago I decided that it was about time that I commit to getting this thing finished!
It’s made with walnut and maple with an inlay from Rockler on the cover. The hardest part of this project for me was getting the track in and all the holes drilled out, there are a total of 532 9/16” holes in this thing! That’s a lot of drilling. The drawer underneath is held in place with rare earth magnets. Considering all that I’m extremely happy with how this came out, and just hope my father enjoys it!
