Custom Six Person Walnut Cribbage Board with Carved Loon

This custom cribbage board is soon to be headed to Saskatchewan Canada where many games of cribbage will be played on it.

Per clients request I used dark walnut to create this large custom board.  It is a six player board and measures in at 18 inches wide x 32 inches long and is around  one inch thick.  There is a slot put in the back for peg storage.

The client also asked for a silhouette of a loon and the number at the 30, 60, 90 and 120 points on the board, with the other points numbered every 5 holes.  You will also notice the skunk silhouette after the 90 point.

The board is titled "Bill's Board"  with  "You gotta pay to play" at the bottom of the board. I can see some very spirited games being played on this board.

The larger carving in the center is of a Loon and was done using a 3-D CNC router system.  I think it really adds to the elegance of this custom cribbage board. It is recessed and surrounded by an elliptical shape to simulate water.  It really came out nice!
