Last month, I set a record for the largest batch of live-edge cribbage boards made in my shop: 17. I had dedicated cutting, sanding and spray finishing stations set up and was in full production mode working carefully and efficiently.
My goal was to build up enough inventory to have a good selection available, and enough variety to make a nice showing.
Most of the crib boards are apple or black walnut from wood I harvested and milled from two local trees taken down for development. I am always on the lookout for unique shapes of wood to use for cribbage boards!
While I am uncertain about what to expect in regards to sales, I am promoting the cribbage boards in different ways. Etsy has been good this year, and I am trying out Amazon Handmade (not sure what to think of it, and I have no expectations). I’ve also been promoting them on Twitter and Instagram. The first sale of the season came from Etsy earlier this week, and the customer in Pennsylvania already received it and is excited to gift it.
Please check out my Cribbage Boards page, and share with anyone else who may be interested. As always, shipping is free in Canada and USA.
Take care and be safe. Stay inside and play cribbage!
