I made this Cribbage table from a slab of broad leaf maple. It was salvaged from a tree that fell in my parents yard several years ago. The slab is about 2.5” thick 44” long and 16ish inches wide. It sits on 16” hairpin legs.
The pegs are turned from Purple Heart and Black limba. So, there is an issue with this table. It’s very obvious once you spot it. Leave a comment if you do.

I don’t know anything about cribbage, but is it missing a hole? If not, I can’t find a single flaw. That is beautiful.

Quite a table, looks Great, takes good lay out skips to do iy correctly (I never a pattern this large). As for the score hole a pen and paper will do the trick. Job well done.

Missing a hole.
That would be an easier fix than having extra holes.

Looks to me like you are shortening the game by about 5 points.

The outside track after you round the corner there is one group of 4 instead of 5. Can’t tell you how many times that counting thing would mess me up. And my grandpa would be absolutely delighted to have the hand on the lower right. Not sure I ever scored 29 before.

Green_Hornut has it correctly. In the group after 50 on outside track, one hole missing. I’ve played cribbage for more than 50 years – got the 29 hand twice, along with a few 28s…

Great looking table!

Thank you for all the kind words. You folks have sharper eyes than I. I drilled all the holes, oiled each hole, put four coats of teak oil on the board and photographed the thing. I never noticed the missing hole. It had to be pointed out to me.
