Custom Cape Cod Cribbage Board

 This custom request came from Massachusetts with a little twist. It will be a gift for the clients Mom, who happens to live on the cape. The twist is my client bartered to make a large afghan in exchange for the cribbage board.  I think it is fair to say we are both very pleased with the outcome.  I love mine they are very toasty and the colors were exactly what I asked for.

I used Blue board pine in this creation and it measured in at around 18 x 18 inches.  The holes are 3/16 inch to handle the oversized custom metal pegs which came with the board and to assist in better seeing of the pegs and holes.
