Made this cribbage board for a friend of mine. I took the pattern from her old board when we were in Myrtle Beach. I’ll be giving it to her when we go back in April. I’m sure she’ll be surprised! But man, that’s a lot of little holes to drill !!
Thanks to Bert (prospector 45 )for the stand idea.

G’Day Prez, That’s one U-Beaut cribbage board and YES a whole heap of holes to drill, but I think the set-out would have been just as time consuming.. Well done sir!

Looks to a bit on the boring side.

So just how many holes are bored there?

It does look good!

Yes, it was a very boring project….let’s see…347 for the initial template, 347 for the first transfer to the board ( I usually just punch a small hole before taking the template off ) 347 for the final “bore” that takes me to 1041 holes…..oh, did I mention the fact that I messed up half way through and had to start all over again?? :(
Oh to have a CNC that will do all this boring work at a punch of a button! But it was all worth it in the end!
