I just completed a new cribbage board, but this one was made much differently from the others. I scaled up the board, and added a base to transform it into a table.
I had some fun with the base. For the stretcher, I used the bandsaw to cut three slits of graduated lengths in one end of the stretcher to spread it.
Then, I cut corresponding mortises in the legs and drove the joint together. Yes, it was tricky!
For the cribbage board top, I bored the 3/8″ holes freehand, using a plunge router. The bit grabbed in one hole, causing a large jagged, spiral hole as I tried to recover.
After some deliberation, I decided to fill the hole with clear resin and rebore the hole.
If you’re in playing in the right-hand track, beware of step 27!
