I made my boyfriend this cribbage board for Christmas. It's made from bird's eye maple, I sanded and laquered it then drilled the 245 holes with a hand drill. The alinement isn't perfect since I had to do the drilling free hand with a hand drill but I think it turned out pretty decent and the wood is gorgeous Smiley



Thanks for looking and comments! Smiley

Cribbage is a card game, you use the board to keep score. Smiley

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

WOWZERS! That is simply amazing! The woods is gorgeous, you finished it so well and all those holes!  I once made a 4-track cribbage board, but it was just a plain old rectangle. I feel ya'.
