Default Cribbage Board Coffee Table

I made 2 of these a few years ago out of white pine. The holes were all laid out by hand & the rows were kept straight by sliding the top along a straight edge clamped to the drill press table. Because I was using a 15" drill press, I had to leave the 2 outside pieces off the top until after the drilling was complete. Otherwise, I would not have been able to drill to the center of the top. The center line of the bit on a 15" drill press is only 7.5" from the column. You can see the glue lines. I used brad point drill bits to keep nice clean holes.

Good job! Clean and simple lines that are appealing.

Never played cribbage but I see a lot of neat looking boards with some really creative designs.

Being in a table top, rather than a board that would be put away, looks like those holes could be Hell to keep cleaned out.

That is why a table like that requires a plastic or glass cover,

No, that would not be Hell, I'm talking stuff sticking in the holes - like coffee, soda, or whatever a little kid could find to stuff (or pour) in. And a plastic or glass cover would not stand in a little kid's way, those little varmints can be very tricky.

How about a thin second layer in the same wood, with an outside edge to hold it in place for when it's just being used as an ordinary table? Extend the edge the thickness of the cribbage top so it stays firmly in place. Or fashion some kind of latch or pins to keep the auxiliary top from tipping. I like the look of the table, a really nice project, well done.
