Saw this piece of Hick. Liked the grain. Made a simple cribbage board out of it.

Very nice looking. Did you create a drilling jig.

This particular board is all free hand drilled. After finishing it, it dawned on me that perhaps a jig would be beneficial. Of course my next board began free drilled before it occured to me that it was such a pain with the last one, so I created a jig.

Nice board, my wife and I started playing cribbage lately during our camping trips. I would love to see your jig, I would like to make a board for my wife’s birthday.

I’m with the rest on this… that is a great way to show off a beautifully figured piece of wood!

I too would be interested in seeing ideas for a drilling jig for boards like this. My wife and I play a lot of cribbage, and a board is on my list of projects to do.

Nice work.

Very nice work… I have a couple of family members that love cribbage. I feel some Christmas presents coming on.

Thanks for the links!
