Designing a cribbage board

A traditional design for a cribbage board is to have a top and a bottom where the lower portion hinges away from the upper to reveal storage areas for cards and pegs.

Start by either finding or drawing up a board. We’ll use:

Cribbage_Board

Import the file, scale it to the desired size, remove overlapping geometry, expand strokes and merge so as to create paths suited for V carving to arrive at:

Cribbage_Board

Import into Carbide Create, set stock size appropriately, rotate and select and group as needed.

Refining the toolpaths is left as an exercise for the reader.

Duplicate the file, remove the holes and gridlines and draw in pockets for storing cards and pegs.
