Anodized aluminum. Designed to be modern and sustainable
For our cribbage boards we decided to start with a single solid block of 6000 series aircraft grade aluminum. We machine the blocks down to a classic design that combines familiarity with a surprising heft. By using aluminum we are able to consistently achieve a level of precision not found in traditional cribbage boards.
A finish that's as durable as it is beautiful.
A well refined product should be just that. Refined. Our boards start at their elemental state of pure aluminum, after precision machining including chamfers and corner rounding, each Gapple cribbage board is hand polished to an impeccable finish. After polishing they are sent to be anodized in 6 different colors. The anodizing provides a durable shell that will never flake or chip even after years of use. Our colors add a layer of personalization for every cribbage player.
Tradition at is core, with a new touch
A cribbage board is not complete without somewhere to store the pegs. We decided to keep ours simple and discrete. By machining a pocket in the back, we were able to take advantage of a space separating the starting and scoring block. This allowed a space for the 9 metal pegs. For the peg holder we chose brushed 304 series stainless steel. We have it laser cut for superior fit and finish allowing it to smoothly slide in and out of the slot.
Crafted for smooth, precise lines
What sets our cribbage board a step above the rest is our attention to detail and quality of each board. Our process incorporates time tested manufacturing techniques along with custom designed fixtures specifically for Gapple cribbage boards. Our customers can feel confident when purchasing a Gapple cribbage board that they are buying the best.
