I’m beginning to catch up on posting some recently-completed projects which are now posted in my Store.
The wood for these two cribbage boards is from a local apple tree. While I cannot guarantee one of these spectacular boards will improve your game, it may be enough to distract your opponent so that you can call Muggins and steal their points.
Since I do not use a CNC (computer numerically controlled) machine in my work, it is up to me to precisely lay out and drill each hole. As David Pye discusses in his book, The Nature and Art of Workmanship, these cribbage boards are an excellent example of “workmanship of risk” because the success of the final product relies on my abilities every step along the way. One misplaced hole can literally ruin a cribbage board.
As with all my work, each of these cribbage boards is signed and dated.
This board features live edges and three tracks. Epoxy is used to stabilize the centre area.
The live edge of this board is removed because of damage. I quite like vertical edge and how it contrasts with the rich tones of the top. This cribbage board features three tracks and a scoring field.
This is the fifth slide from my PechaKucha presentation.
