Default Cribbage Boards

I note that I've been largely absent for several months ... lurking, but not active. I've been oh so busy. That's a good thing, from some perspectives....

With our largest holiday boutique ahead of us this weekend, and my making all but finished (yes, that's a pun), I thought it was time to show one of the new things I've created on the CNC this year.

When I started making cutting boards - especially end grain boards - for craft fairs, my # 1 request was for chess boards. I made them to get those voices out of my head ... and my # 1 request became chess pieces. With anticipation that there's just no winning, I began to import pieces from India, where carvers produce beautiful work for an amazing price. So, now, I sell chess sets.

And my # 1 request became Cribbage Boards. It took me a year to figure it all out (Humor! Coming at you!), but I now produce 4-track and 3-track boards. Both are entirely customizable: choose a bottom, choose a top, and you've got your unique cribbage board.

Me? I'm not a player. I'm just the maker.

I love the compass rose, the Honu, and the seahorse. Fantastic work! As an avid player I only like 2 track boards, but 3 or 4 track seem to be what everyone is looking for these days. did you create the artwork yourself, or find them somewhere else?



I am sure you will have many orders for these

I’m a player, not yet a maker, (and somewhat a collector), and those are beautiful! I would think that they sell quickly.

Gorgeous work, Henry! But then all your work is nice so I guess this is just normal for you, right! LOL!

I've never played but they look fun to make. I may have to try it sometime.

Can't say which one I like best, the rooster (my last name is rooster in French), or the sea horse. They're all pretty darn nice. Makes you want to take up the game.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Excellent boards. I played for years until I started playing against my wife. Never one another game. ��

I designed the bottoms with the carve outs for the cards & pegs. For the tops, I searched far & wide for the V-carve & 3D artwork. Some of the artwork came from ebay, some from Pinterest, and much of of the 3D came with Aspire or from Vectric's Design & Make.

I believe it was a wise man that said no one gets rich doing 3D carving on a CNC ... and I don't. The horse top is a 6 hour carve. I do sell it, but I primarily show it for the "wow" factor at shows. With all humility, I feel it's important for people walking into my craft fair booth to feel that the work is made by an accomplished craftsman ... and not "just like I did in Junior High." I've heard that too often at this point, so I'm working to make sure many pieces on display are decidedly beyond the memories of former 14 years olds that think they did exactly what I now do.

Beginners can make a simple cheese board, I get it. If that's all that I have on display, then I deserve the negative comments. Hopefully, these cribbage boards help me show that the work has progressed beyond the serving tray I made in Industrial Arts back in 1968.
