The last couple of weeks I started building a cribbage board for a client. I will be the first to admit that I had no clue what cribbage was, let alone what this board was supposed to look like. In all honesty I thought it was something out of Harry Potter – LOL!
The build was special order and quite unique. The clients wife is a musician and she plays the flute. There were a couple of requests from the client. First, the cribbage board itself would some how need the flute in-layed into the board and then the second and most important detail was that the board itself needed to fit inside the hard case.
We decided to use a curly maple stock with a mahogany border. This project was a challenge I tell ya, but being the perfectionist I am I think the board turned out amazing. I ended up using a light tan stain with poly to really bring out the tiger stripes in the curly maple wood.
All in all as I mentioned, this project was a challenge and a real treat to build. I am always fascinated at the unique projects that come across my work shop. I truly love this hobby. Hop eyou enjoy the pictures from the build. Cheers from Indiana…and GO IU!
