Custom Bend, Oregon Cribbage board

The process has now been completed and here is the final result with the hand rubbed polyurethane applied. The beauty of the wood grain really popped out on this board. It has a very warm soft feel to it. I can envision many games being played over this board.


This request came from Seattle, Washington.  They asked me if it was possible to use this photos design and create a cribbage board for them?

My first question was do you have permission to use this logo?

The client then contacted the Bend, Oregon Chamber and got this response:
The Bend, Oregon visitor’s bureau stated that the logo with a capital N in Bend is not copyrighted, the city created it for marketing for tourism and business development.

Therefore it could be used for this purpose.
I then set out to create the 2 person track which would go around this board.

This is the MDF template which was burned on a laser machine.

Per clients request the board will be made out of cedar and is around 15 inches long, 12 inches wide and 3/4 inches thick.



The board is shaping up here with the tracks drilled and the logo lasered on to the board.

There is a custom routered slot on the back to hold the custom metal pegs which go with each cribbage board I create.

The process has now been completed and here is the final result with the hand rubbed polyurethane applied. The beauty of the wood grain really popped out on this board. It has a very warm soft feel to it. I can envision many games being played over this board.
A final finishing coat of wax has been applied and the board is ready to be on its way to its new home.
