Category: Cribbage Boards

On mass-produced boards, numbers are often placed between each set of 5 holes to help people count.  We feel that they are unnecessary as most people can count out the holes perfectly well without them and they do clutter the design.

Our engraving method, using a router and v-bit, is not at all suited to making the tiny numbers needed between holes. Most numbered boards are screen printed instead of engraved as the wood often can’t hold such detail when engraved.  The time taken to hand-paint each number, once engraved, is quite considerable. Except in rare circumstances, we do not add these numbers.  If we do include them in a design, please expect the price to increase significantly.
