Custom Box Style Cribbage boards

This is an order which was placed at the Hooper's show for six custom Oak box style four person cribbage boards. They will soon be on their way to eastern Montana as Christmas presents.

This is the boards cut to size and prepared for the drilling of the tracks and the pockets below for the deck of cards and the custom metal pegs which accompany each board.
The boxes are roughly 8 inches wide, 16 inches long, and around 3 inches thick.  They have been made out of Red Oak.





Here you can see the tracks have been drilled and the boxes are laid out for sanding and the several coats of poly which will be applied.




Here is one of the boards drilled with a four person track







 Here is the bottom section of the box.  It has two pockets cut into the wood to house the cards and the custom pegs.




Pieces of brown felt line these pockets.

These boxes have been completed and are awaiting to be placed under the Christmas tree.
