This is a fun, "giant" version of the cribbage board, created by Wood Artist Paul Szewc of Guelph, Ontario, Canada. It is a very comfortable and pleasing board to play the game on, and it has been crafted ready to hang on your wall for storage. When not using the board it can become a fun piece of artwork.
The board is made with a block of solid North American Hard Sugar Maple with the card/peg cover available in either cherry or walnut. The above photos feature the walnut lid but it is also available in male with a cherry lid.
Customers were pleased with his smaller versions of the standard cribbage board, so Paul decided to build the "cadillac" of cribbage boards.
The peg holes were drilled with holes further apart to grip the pegs easier; numbers were enlarged for easier reading; the scoreboard was laser engraved—an upgrade from the screen-printed boards normally 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.
This board can be played with 2 players, 3 players or 4 players (partners).
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.
Each unit comes with a deck of top-quality Bicycle playing cards, product tag and over-sized scoring metal pegs.
The top of the storage box is held in place by rare earth magnets.
This 3-track cribbage board is a delight to use and a delight to the eye!
Total dimensions are: 27 3/4" x 8 1/2"
Due to variance in wood grain, your item may differ slightly from the one pictured.
PERSONALIZE your board for an additional $15.
(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.
The photo shows a walnut lid - we are out of stock on walnut lids - you will get a cherry one.
