Default Cribbage Board

Didn't know what all to get my Dad for his 75th Birthday, so I toyed with the idea of making something. Finally settled on a cribbage board that can use a little larger pegs, and then had to find a design.

I saw a picture of a cookie cutter online, and then transferred that into a rough pattern in AutoCad. It took a little experimenting to get the track lines long enough and equal enough in length for the spacing I wanted, and keeping them looking visually appealing. After a few tries I was able to get the lines within 1/2 inch of each other in length, and when the spacing is divided 122 times it looks pretty even. It took a few opinions to determine if I should leave the stripes on the board parallel with the design, or skew them, but the OCD in me wanted them in line.

I center punched all the holes using a magnifier to make it as close as possible, drilled them on the drill press, and cut the shape out on the band saw. I sanded everything to 150 grit and coated with oil and wax.

The pegs are still in the mail, metal ones that are a little longer than average. Feel free to use the design if you want, it works out to about a 10 inch square.

I really hope someday to get a CNC, but it was still a fun project nonetheless.

Great idea,Doug.
Excellent job too. I always think of cribbage boards in a straight line, what a neat idea. Your Dad will like it I am sure.
It sure turned out nice, good job

Great job, Doug! I really like the design. I have made several but mine are the tradional inline design. I applaud your creativeness.

I can't drill in a straight line, so curves work better for me!

Cribbage boards are my # 2 request at craft fairs (after chess boards). I keep saying no ... but, Hmmmmmmmm.
