Figured Cribbage Boards

I was commissioned to make a couple of cribbage boards again for Christmas presents and these two turned out better than I figured they would (sorry, couldn’t resist the pun). I purchased two pieces of walnut crotch while visiting my first Rockler store in Portland, OR this summer and had originally planned on both boards becoming cribbage boards just because of the figure. While I was clear-coating the walnut board seen above I decided that I wanted to make the other board out of a different species of wood. As I combed through my stacks of lumber I remembered I had a piece of curly maple, found it, and the end result is what you see above. Both of the patterns on these boards were made with Rockler’s Cribbage Board Jig and then I redrilled the holes deeper on my Shopsmith.

A lot of bang in those boards. I grabbed a bunch of that Burl Walnut when they had that special from my local Rockler store, nice stuff.

Great job.
I also bought their template and then made a full size one from plywood. Eventually I will make a metal one too.
I am pleseased with that template, but, it is slightly cumbersome to use.

I do like your boards and also do enjoy playing cribbage too.

Great job with these crib boards, guessing the hard part was all the holes and the time at the drill press.
I’ve built these in the past and it is always the holes that takes the longest.

Enjoy and again, great work on these boards!

Thank you therealSteveN; I know a lot of people here in Spokane, WA that are wanting Rockler to build a store here.
