Rockler introduces six new cribbage board template sets

Two- and three-player options are available in two sizes.

Rockler Woodworking and Hardware has introduced six new cribbage board template sets that enable users to create custom game boards using only a handheld drill.

"The holidays are just around the corner, and more and more, people want to give handmade gifts," said Steve Krohmer, Rockler's vice president of product development. "A custom cribbage board is a great personalized gift, and with these new templates, making one is easier than ever."

The new templates include two- and three-player versions in two sizes: standard, for smaller boards with 1/8" diameter pins, and XL, for larger boards with 1/4" pins. A continuous curved-track pattern is available in both versions in standard and XL sizes. Straight-track pattern templates are available in both two-and three-player configurations in the standard size.

Rockler also is offering a free plan for a folding travel cribbage board that uses one of the new templates. The plan can be downloaded at The templates are made of durable transparent acrylic for easy alignment during the drilling process. The user drills a first set of holes and then repositions the template to continue the pattern. Included indexing pins maintain the alignment, and the instructions detail which holes need to be drilled in each step.

Each template set includes a spring-loaded self-centering drill bit to make it easier to drill straight, accurate holes. Curved-track templates incorporate a rounded end that can serve as a pattern for routing a matching curved edge on the cribbage board.

To accompany the new templates, Rockler also has added three-player sets of solid steel cribbage pegs in both 1/8" and 1/4" sizes.
