This is a mesquite cribbage board that can be stored on the wall. It has a little fractal burning on the top and the whole thing was covered in clear epoxy resin. The peg storage is in the pocket in the back. The lid has 6 magnets. When the magnets of opposite polarity are together , the lid is locked on. When you turn it so the same polarity magnets are together, the lid pops off!

It is 1” x 7 1/2” x 27”

Cheers, Jim

The compartment storage is very good feture….One reason more to order them from you.

Really cool Jim. Great idea with the storage in back and interesting way to do it with the magnets. I’ll have to remember that. I very much like those pegs too.

WOW! I love that storage on the back! Really great project, Jim!

Funny, being in the Navy you would think I’d know how to play cribbage. Never learned it or Pinochle.

Very signature “Jim” design!

How did you lay out and drill the holes, template or sheer will power?

Thank you all!

Hi Bruce. I have a steel template that I used. I drilled them all twice.

Cheers, Jim

Thanks, Cliff and Mel

Hi Mel ! This burning took about 1 minute on variable voltage once the surface was wetted thoroughly.
