Default Routing peg storage for a crib board

Hi everyone,
I am a woodworker of many years, who has just started making crib boards. I am having trouble trying to figure out how to successfully route a storage space in the bottom of the crib boards I have made. Any ideas?

Hi 'Bear'; welcome!

Art, I'm pretty sure 'Bear' is trying to make a sliding cover like the old fashioned wood pencil boxes had. Or at least something that would do the same job. Some chess sets also came with wood boxes and clever cover arrangements.. The thing is, when you turn the cribbage board right-side up, you can't have any hardware sticking proud of the bottom of the box/board.

That one's pretty tricky!

My 30 year old store bought Cribbage Board has storage space on the bottom. I believe it is similar to what you are wanting. I posted 3 photo's so others can tell you how they would approach making a storage space.

I believe his Forum name is KartRacer but if you put in a search for Cribbage Boards there is a guy who makes many great looking boards. He may have the ultimate answer for you.

In my board you will see that the cover is a very thin stainless steel that is guided by the cut of a Slot Cutter bit and the compartment has been plunge routed out by a slightly smaller bit than the Slott Cutter.

The easiest way would be to make the bottom section in 3 pieces and glue it onto the main body into which you have routed the hole for the storage. The 2 side pieces would have the slot for the cover and the middle piece would be the stop for it.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Thanks for all your help, everyone, I have come up with an idea to route a slot in the bottom large enough for the pegs, and then make a wood top. I will hold the top on with rare earth magnets, and just have a finger notch to get the cover off when needed. I will let you know if it works.

I had built a cribbage board at one point. I drilled holes for the storage and capped it with a sliding piece - a short cut with a dovetail bit, some manual work on the cap to make a seamless fit.
