Make Your Own Cribbage Board

4 Hours
I've never played cribbage before, but a friend challenged me to make a crib board. It was a fun project and great for a moderately-skilled woodworker. One reader made a crib board (following these instructions) as a wedding present, and he did it all with hand tools.
The main body is made of pine and the racing stripe is oak. I made the pegs from double-headed nails.
The body is pine I had lying around the shop and the racing stripe is oak.
I cut-off the points on some double-headed nails and painted one pair red.
The body swivels to store cards and pegs.
