Today when I woke up, there was a package at my door.  The package’s return address was EJH Woodworking.  I was a bit surprised because best bud Ed and I decided to forgo exchanging Christmas gifts this year, but when I looked a little closer at the address label, I noticed that the package was not being delivered to me.  No, the label was addressed to #2 of 5 and #3 of 5.

Being a tad bit curious, we called the boys upstairs, and had them open the package.  Just inside the box (on top of the contents) was a letter written to my boys from best bud Ed.

Merry Christmas Boys.

As you may or may not know, I’ve started my own woodworking business.  Having just finished my workshop, I’m proud to say that you are the recipients of my first project under the name EJH Woodworking!

May you get many years of use out of this.

Rules are the same for 3 players, however each player is dealt 5 cards and 1 card dealt to the crib.

Take it easy on your dad.  He’s getting old and the mind is not as sharp as it used to be.

One more note – Your dad likes to cheat.  Keep a close eye on him!

Merry Christmas,


Under the letter was a package wrapped in bubble wrap.  After we removed the object from it's bubble wrap cocoon, I saw the SECOND most amazing cribbage board I have ever seen!! 

(The title “MOST amazing cribbage board I have ever seen” (link) is already taken!)

What I saw was a hand made, solid oak, three track cribbage board built on a pedestal stand, with a hinged lid for on-board storage providing room for two decks of cards, and the cribbage pegs.  This is the kind of cribbage board that I LOVE!  It is 6” x 15” inches, and 3 1/2” inches tall, and HEAVY DUTY! 

It has a timeless classy look, and because of the pedestal base, the cribbage board has some heft to it (which I love!).  Puny little cribbage boards that skate around the table as you try to peg your points are just not my thing.  I like my boards to be the focal point or a table "centerpiece", and let me tell you, this one qualifies! 

What Ed made for the boys is nothing less than AMAZING!  It truly is a unique, custom, hand made cribbage board that the phrase “Heirloom quality” only just begins to describe! 
Since a picture is worth a thousand words….

If anyone reading this post would be interested in a cribbage board like this one for themselves, or as a special gift, I would urge you to get a hold of Ed at EJHWoodworking (phone and email available on the website by following the link). 

You will not be disappointed!


  1. Wow.. Very nice.. I wish I knew what cribbage was.. :)

  2. Well.........who won the first game???


  3. That cribbage board is amazing. I am just learning how to play and I have one of those cheap boards. :( Maybe someday I will get a nice one.

  4. What a cool and special gift. I hope that your boys cherish and enjoy it for many years to come.

  5. This is so cool, I am crying! What a friend you have in Ed! BEAUTIFUL BOARD ED!

  6. Awesome board! You may have to rename 'skunk corner', 'dead man's curve'.

  7. YOu know...from the "YouTube" video angle, it kinda looks like a coffin..., which might be appropos considering your age! HA ha ha ha.

    In the spirit of full disclosure, I have never played cribbage. I have never WATCHED cribbage played and therefore, you shouldn't listen to anything I say when it comes to anything at all to do with cabbage...I mean...cribbage.

  8. Oh my - I used to play cribbage with my dad All. The. TIME! I need a new cribbage board - one with 3 tracks (and pegs because ours got lost - or eaten by a dog - I'm not sure which). I am totally sold on this - it is BEAUTIFUL! Going to the site . . . thanks for the direction!
