My first cribbage board.
« on: May 06, 2013, 09:13:06 PM »
and I don't even know how to play cribbage :)
This one is a test in pine before carving in oak.  OIT = Oregon Institute of Technology.

These gCodes fit on a 24" x 5.5" board leaving enough room at the top for a logo or text.  Lines carve 0.070" deep with 60 degree V-tool.  Drills holes (with a 1/8" up spiral bit) 0.375" deep.

Very nice. Thanks for sharing. I guess you will have to learn how to play it.

Very cool. My Team SGT when I was overseas talked ad nauseum. I look forward to making a board for him...I too would have to learn to play it.

If you're going to make a cribbage board, you'll need this Gcode for cutting a peg storage pocket in the back of the board.

Zero at the edge of the board.

First run the CutTopANDPocket using an upspiral, 1/4" cutter capable of plunge cutting.
Second run the CutKerf using a Dremel #199 slitting saw.
Cut a 'door' from 0.010" brass shim stock {use index card to fit a paper template into the slot} and bend the 'door' quite a bit so it holds it's self in place.

Setting the 'door' on a piece of soft wood and lightly striking a punch to make a dimple creates a 'handle' for sliding the door out.

Would it be possible to get the peg storage files as DXF's?

Thanks
Troy
