I realized while doing this that I finished another cribbage board, and only the folks on Instagram have seen it. I forgot to post about it's build.
|Finished cribbage board.|
I cut off a short length of stair rail for this.
|I started by planing the edges off. There was a wide groove down the middle for the wooden handrail to secure to the metal handrail.|
|Surprisingly, I did a fairly decent job on the crosscut.|
Next was to make a rabbet around one side, and hollow out the other so they fit together.
|I planed and chiseled a rabbet all around one piece.|
|Roughing the hollow with a gouge.|
|I tried to do it relatively even, so I could keep track of my progress.|
|Nearly at depth.|
|Getting to know my new vintage router.|
|Now they fit together.|
Would you have done this process the same way?
