Hello from The Right Jack!

How did I get started making cribbage board coffee tables?  Good question.

Our family always played cribbage.  Years ago, as my mother got older, she would get lost on the small back and forth cribbage boards.  I decided to find her a larger board, but couldn’t find one the right size and with a continuous track.    I decided I would have to make it for her.

As I was planning out the cribbage board, it turned out to be the size that would make a great coffee table.  Viola!  The cribbage board coffee table was born.

When I presented it to her, she cried.  She loved it and couldn’t wait to show it to all her friends.  Oh, oh, now continued demands came in (yes, demands) but I had a full time job and a family.  I didn’t have time for that.  My mother twisted my arm a bit, after all, these were her friends.  Ok, so I made some more.

That was the end until I retired.  I started making them again.  I started making just the natural wood.  Then I branched out to a few colors for fun and variation.  Those who have purchased my cribbage tables love the fun aspect of the furniture as well as the function of a game board table.  They tell me it enhances their enjoyment of the game.

There is nothing I like better than hearing their stories of playing on a cribbage board coffee table that I made.

Tell me your stories.  I can’t wait to read them!

    I came to love the game of cribbage playing with my Dad and Grandma. Of course, the only cribbage board I’ve known is the best one out there, a hand crafted cribbage board coffee table, made by David Pearson (The Right Jack)…maybe I am biased but after seeing the board my Dad and Grandma played on, I thought.. How did they keep track of their pegs? The Right Jack’s cribbage table allows you ample space to keep track of your and your opponent’s pegs and also room for an iced tea and a bowl of snacks hehe. When my Dad would beat me by a lot of points.. “skunked me”, (or was it double skunked?)..he put the final peg all the way on another cribbage table in the next room. Haha! Come to think of it…I think it is time for a rematch!

  2. These are so nice, David! I’ve never played cribbage before, but I think I might have to learn. Thanks for popping over to my blog!
