This board was designed and made from solid hardwoods by Wood Artist Paul Szewc of Guelph, Ontario, Canada. The top of the board is solid maple and the bottom is solid North American Cherry.
Frustrated with the standard cribbage board, Paul took a new direction on the cribbage board. He has drilled the peg holes further apart so you can grip the pegs easier. As he grows older Paul's eyes don’t see as well as they used to, so he has enlarged the numbers for easier reading. The scoreboard has been laser engraved—an upgrade from the screen-printed boards often seen. The laser engraving will not wear off.
The "wonky" design of the board and the custom laser-engraved skunk and double skunk images add his own flare. The wonky design is like his mini wonky jewelry boxes - whimsical.
It is finished with multiple sandings and sprayed with sealer then sanded again and then sealed. This creates that smooth-to-the-touch finish. This process is the same as what a high quality piece of furniture receives. It is very durable and requires no care. Simply wipe with a damp cloth if it becomes dirty. It will last for many years to come.
The top fits snugly into the base, held in place by rare earth magnets. The bottom compartment is a perfect place to store a deck of cards and scoring pegs. A great way to keep everything together and transports well. Each unit comes with scoring pegs, material and colour options listed below (See the last photo for options). Please note: Playing Cards NOT included.

Total dimensions of nestled unit are 16"L x 5W" x 2".
Due to variance in wood grain, your item may differ slightly from the one pictured.
PERSONALIZE your board for an additional $15. To purchase custom engraving please select personalization from the listings menu. (NOTE: Engraving is usually put on the front of the board in between the skunks. If it doesn't fit there we put in on the back of the lid. If you wish it to be elsewhere you need to specify in Note to Shop.) Personalizing a board DOES NOT SLOW shipping response time. We still ship the same day or next.
