Very nice. My wife and I recently rediscovered the charms on the old mastermind game. I am planning on making mastermind boards for Christmas presents this year. Your cribbage board gives me some great ideas.

Love it. I love playing cribbage. It’s hard to find people that know how to play. Where did you find the pegs? Good job.

localmac: Same for me, love to play but no one to play with. I got the pegs on ebay, you can get enough for 2 boards for about $7.00. Another source is Pete's Pegs

kayakguy: Love to see how the Mastermind works out.

Beautiful board! My grandfather taught me to play cribbage at an early age and my sister and I still enjoy it. Nice work.

Love the game… except my wife frequently beats me…. Nicely done board… I assume you made the pegs, too? And, did you make up some sort of jig to drill the holes so evenly? I should try something similar as I gain experience.
