Default Cribbage Boards

Thought I'd see if there was any interest around here for Cribbage Boards. Made up a few different ones (more with the Polish Eagle) for the upcoming Polish Festival and my store display. People here won't pay for the super nice fancy ones, so I kept them basic and simple just to see what the reaction is.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

Very nice John ! How much fancier can you get than those?

What kind of finish do they have. Is the one on the bottom left different wood,and same stain?

Bottom left is oak with water based poly sprayed on - no stain.

The others are 15" pine blanks with golden oak stain and mineral oil poly.

They can be made with a variety of hardwoods with compartments for the cards and pegs. There's really no limit to how much can be done to them.

Very nice work, as usual, John! How long does it take to cut one of those? I suppose you have to be careful not to get too much finish in the holes...

Points to Ponder...

LEARNING - the decision you make to know and
understand more about some thing.

TIME - the thing that gets in the way of learning.

Looks really good, John!! They don't look basic to me either. My favorite is the compass rose.

There's probably 5 or 6 decent sized ones around SE Mich. By that I mean they're usually Fri evening, Sat, and Sun. I'll go to maybe 2. Plus I'll go to NW Ohio (Toledo). They are super nice people and give me a lot of breaks on pricing, space, etc. to make it worthwhile to come down. We're usually the hit of that event. I won't go to the really big one on Memorial Day week end cause it's 4 days and it would be too hard on the wife, since she's still working a real job to help support my "retirement"....... and of course a roof that doesn't leak too bad, food, and such. Been tempted to go to Cleveland, but now you're talking a lot of time and expense. This is supposed to be just a "paying" hobby to keep me out of trouble. lol It pays my part of the deer lease, buys my bullets, an occasional new firearm or two, a fishing charter with my buddy in crime and our grand-kids, the Vectric conference.............. You know - the necessities of life. I suppose I could really get into it, expand, and get back in the rat race, but I don't really want to. The East Coast has probably more Polish people (judging from holiday sales) than the midwest.

Believe it or not - the Italians party longer and harder than the Polish people. I just gotta figure out some Italian stuff. In the evenings they have a bottle of wine in one hand, and they're credit card in the other. But nothing beats a true Polish beer and kielbasa.

About 2 hours total, but I know I could cut that time down 40% or so upping the speeds and staying with the program cutting constantly. I was concerned about the holes getting clogged too, so I sprayed these. Kept one out that I'm brushing. Works pretty good if you don't start with a fully loaded brush.
