Introduction: Aluminum Cribbage Board
I learned to play cribbage as a child and have enjoyed playing ever since. It was a great game to learn to help with counting, adding and strategy. A couple of years ago I decided to take an old chunk of aluminum and machine a cribbage board of my own. I used autocad to lay out the pattern and an end mill to do the machining. It took some time, due to the fact that I had to surface the board and drill out 481 holes. For the pegs I used aluminum welding filler rod with colored heat shrink to keep track of which pegs were together. I did not make the cards, but I thought the picture would look nice with a perfect 29-point hand on display.
