Custom Cherry w/Walnut Strip Cribbage Boards

This pair of box style cribbage boards are headed to a destination wedding as gifts of the bride.

The tops are being created out of 1 inch thick Cherry. With the bottom section being 1 1/8 inches thick. The finished boxes will be approximately 8 inches wide and 18 inches long.

The first photo shows the Walnut strip that has been inlayed into the cherry top. Once the track has been drilled there will be lasered lettering in the center of the board.



This is the bottom section of the box and in this photo I have got the pockets created which will hold the cards and the custom metal pegs.
This is done by using a mortising bit. The hand chisel shown is then used to clean up the pocket.

Once completed, the pockets will be lined with a coffee colored felt.

Will post more as the this project progresses and also the custom maple/walnut cutting board that is in progress.
