First off I would like to thank JL7 for his blog on End Grain Cribbage Board Streets.

I have been hunting for free pallets to build things out of and I was at my local lumber yard looking through their pile of pallets that the give away and I found what was either a pallet or a crate the was marked “Destination Boston” “Origination Malaysia”. So I’m not sure what species the wood is but some of it was spalted (if anyone can identify the species I would be interested in knowing). I had to use a forstner bit to hog out the streets for the inlay and as I was chiseling out the streets one side started to crack because I was too close to the edge. I had to put the cracked side on the inside so it was not visible therefore the board goes counter clockwise instead of clockwise. Even with it’s flaws it will make a great mothers day gift for my grandmother. The best thing about this project is that I took some wood that was destined for the landfill and made something of it. Thanks for looking.

Nice use of recycled wood, no idea what it is, but it’s cool. Glad I could help, thanks.

very nice use of JL7’s inspiration… as for the wood I have only ever heard it called Malaysian wood… think it’s a soft wood like funky pine… but sorry can’t remember…

regardless a very aesthetically looking piece with character.
