When I create a new design for a cribbage board I like to think outside the box. Every cribbage board I’ve ever seen has been a flat rectangle. I thought of creating something more three-dimensional and this design flashed into my head. Using my favorite combination of Amboyna Burl and Gabon Ebony it also includes Applewood for the posts and joints.

Long time since I’ve played cribbage.
That’s a really nice looking board. Orders of magnitude better than one’s I’ve played on.

Great “out of the box” design.

Lovely. Makes me want to learn cribbage. Did you create the pins?

Yes, I buy the pegs, unfinished in bulk. They come with four rings on the top, which I find bulky, so I cut off the top two. Then I paint them with General Finishes “Seal-A-Cell” clear finish tinted with Mixol pigments. Then a final coat or two of Deft spray lacquer.

It depends on the woods and the pattern of course, Mike. I will tell you that this board sold for $200. With more common woods it would go for $150. And the spiral board pattern starts at $250.
