Large Custom Four Person Dark Walnut Cribbage Board

This Large custom four person cribbage board has made its way to its new home in Denver, Colorado as a retirement gift.
The board was made out of dark walnut and roughly measured in at 32 inches long, 18 inches wide, and 15/16 inch thick.  It was accompanied with custom 3/16 inch metal pegs and a deck of cards.

IT DOESN’T MATTER.
