CNC Routed Cribbage Board

I ran this for my wife's grandmother who taught us to play Cribbage. One of the greatest games ever BTW. If you have any questions please feel free to shoot me a message and I can guide you through the machine set up if you want.

Step 1: The Design

These are the DXF files and pictures of my design. You will notice in the DXF that I actually incorporated 2.5D maching rather than 3d machining for the Back side. For the flowers on the front I used a V-Groove bit to get the desired effect with 3d maching. The Holes are .125" deep and I used downshear bits for the pocketing. The backside also features a slot for the Cover to nest into. You will notice on the DXF that I drew the geometry in such a way as to allow the geometry to guide the path of the tool rather than a long lead in and lead out.

Step 2: The finished product

Step 3: Play it

I know most do not have the ability to do the 3D engraving like I have done so here is the G-Code just for the flowers. The M-Code will more than likely have to be edited so that it works with your particular machine. and you will have to do the holes. The part is at 0,0 on the bottom left of the board so you can do an X,Y shift to place it on your table.

I love how you made room for the cards in the back of the board! Why aren't they all like this? So much more clever. Great design!
