Cribbage Board

First time making a cribbage board. Used a section of maple board from a previous project and a strip of African mahogany I had got from Woodcraft for a cutting board that never got used. Not real happy with the self-centering bit I used as I noticed tear out after I drilled all the holes using a hand held electric drill. I tried using the drill press and found that it was causing the bit to start melting the acrylic from friction. The bit required me to disassemble it every 15-20 holes to clear out the chips that built up inside the body. The template was 1/8” acrylic which broke when I tried to remove it. Then a 45 degree chamfer bit was used to make the edges look a bit better before being sanded up to 400 grit.

Finished with three coats of Formby’s Tung oil finish and 0000 steel wool in between.

That a lot of holes to drill. But it’s a fun card game. Well done.
