CRIBBAGE WORLD MAGAZINE

Cribbage WorldHave you ever noticed there is a magazine for everything?  Even if you love the game of cribbage, you may not know that the American Cribbage Congress puts out a monthly magazine, available in print and online.  One of the feature columns is “Cribbage Board of the Month” by Jay Fulwider of Washington state.  This month’s featured board is from The Right Jack.  Jay also goes into some of the history of the game of cribbage, invented around 1640 by Sir John Suckling.

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!
