I made this for my brother for a Christmas gift. He plays cribbage and I thought it would be fun. I found a paper pattern on the internet, printed it out, taped it to the barrel stave and started drilling free hand with my drill press. Needless to say, there is a reason they make templates for this job. It took me several tries and it still did not come out perfect. I used a Sharpie fine point to draw in the numbers and track. I finished it with polyurethane. I made the game pieces from pop-rivets.

Not sure if I will make another, but if I do, I am going to hunt down a template. I don’t know that many people that play cribbage.

Comments and pointers are welcome.

Templates are your best friend when drilling the holes on the cribbage boards. Looks great.
