I’ve been trying to locate a jig or pattern to make the game board for the pegs and jokers game. Any assistance would be appreciated. I’ve found beautiful photos of boards that others have made but no patterns for doing it.

I make Pegs and Jokers with a patchwork box and use self made jigs. I make 2 sizes and use two different jigs to drill them. Check out my web site for pic’s. I also sell templates of either size or both sizes (actual 8 7/8” x 2” or 11 3/8” x 2”) so you can make your own or go into business. I also sell the plans for my drilling jigs, not cheap.
Also available with/for golf tees or cribbage pegs.

Thanks for posting. Your work is beautiful. With your photos and others I’ve seen I think I’ve got enough ideas to tackle the project.

I just made a set played with marbles. Had never heard of it until asked to make a set. I made 6 boards, and now she wants 2 more boards.

I’ll be making one this summer.The plan I made uses welding studs with a colored bead pressed on them for a head. There will be 6 boards linked together for up to 6 people. 8 players takes too ling and gets confusing .
There are 19 holes along the outer edge on 1/2” centers and then there are five holse for the home and filve holes for the castle where they are safe. PM me and I’ll send you the layout…........Jim
