Cribbage anyone? Local artist crafts Timber Lake Cribbage Boards


Don Hanson likes to say he "makes sawdust." What he really makes are one-of-a-kind cribbage boards where players could end up spending more time studying the board than their cards.

Unlike traditional rectangular cribbage boards where players plod up and down the rows of holes with their plastic pegs, Hanson's cribbage boards take players on a journey around tortured annual growth rings and knobby growths that document the past life of a tree that has new life as a game board.
