Iraq shape cribbage boards for fellow Veterans.



These four boards are on their way to their new home. 

They will be presented to individuals just returning from a tour in Iraq with the Army.

It was a real honor to be asked to create these boards.

THANK YOU for doing what you do and serving our country.


This request came from a fellow Veteran via email currently serving in Iraq with a MASH unit. They contacted me asking if I thought this was something I could do. Of course I said I would sure give it a try. It will have the unit patch and some lettering on it and will be presented as an award.


This is a map shape I found online, after importing it into CorelDraw I outlined the shape and saved as an AI file which the CNC router could recognize.



Here is the nice piece of dark walnut which has been cut into the shape with the cribbage track drilled in.  It is a three person board and measures approximately 14 inches wide and 15 inches tall.  There will be a slot placed on the back to hold the pegs and a keyhole so it can be hung on the wall.



The lasering of the first board is done and was done by Northern Lights Engraving in Columbia Falls, MT.
Now the board must be sanded and the poly coats applied.


Stay tuned for more updates soon......:-)
