Made from home milled lumber provided by BushMaster a few years back. Thanks Brian.

About 5-1/2 inches wide – 16 inches long and about 1 inch thick.

The pegs are double headed nails—cut and then colored with fingernail polish.

The plug is from other scrap—locust-I think-not sure. The pegs are stored in a 1/2 diameter deep drilled hole in the board.

This was made using the Rockler Cribbage board jig.
It works better than I had expected it to.

Lightly torched and then a little woodburning to just add a bit of character, finished with 3 coats of tung oil.

Looks good! I especially like how you found the DH nails and converted them for the board.

Great job on the board. I like the idea of the colored nails. My daughter has asked me to make her one of these so I will be using some of your ideas.
