Rockler XL Cribbage Board Templates

WOOD magazine rating


Create a cribbage board 2 - 3 times larger than a typical cribbage board with our new Extra-Large Cribbage Template! This larger, more spacious layout is designed specifically for our new 1/4" Deluxe Cribbage Pegs (49537, sold separately). The two piece template includes indexing pins that allow you to line up the templates to create the tracks in the middle of the board. The template also includes the 1/4" self-centering bit required for drilling the larger holes - a great value. Also available from Rockler: Standard Size Cribbage Board Templates.

WOOD magazine review

Make a “hole” lot of easy-to-see game boards easily

Review Summary

The older I get, the more I appreciate the bigger things in life, such as oversized print and large knobs on jigs. Rockler’s XL Cribbage Board Templates make an 8×28" game board big enough to play without my “cheater” glasses when scoring, and the easy-to-grip optional metal pegs (no. 49537, $16) add a nice touch. Plus, the templates make it easy to crank out lots of game boards to give as gifts.
The kit comes with two templates, a special spring-loaded ¼" drill bit, and two registration pins. You drill the first group of holes with one template; then use the other five times in a step-and-repeat process drilling only the straight-row holes, and then a sixth time drilling all the holes on that template. The registration pins align the template each time with holes you just drilled, and even though they hold the template pretty well, I still clamped it to avoid any miscues. —Tested by Dave Campbell, Editorial Content Chief
