Introduction: Cribbage Board
Crabbage board plus card holder box i made out of old piece of oak my dad had laying in garage
Step 1: Practice
Practiced on some boards I didn’t care about drilling the cribbage pattern with the drill press as to get the hang of it before I did it on my beautiful oak
Step 2: After Practicing on the One on the Left
I took a oak board and cut in pieces and glued together for box bottom next I used the drill press on the top to drill cribbage board holes where the template told me I taped the template that I had had enlarged until fit my board printed at office max on regular paper looking back I wish I would have printed in sticky tack paper it would have stayed in place better but I slowly drilled each hole by drill press. Then I drilled a hole 3/8 in diameter all the way down and 5/8 in diameter only about 3/4 of the way down where I wanted to place the hinge pin the I drilled on top board 5/8 hole and put hinge pin in holes and smashed in snug with hammer to create the swivel top
