My cribbage boards are all constructed of veneered MDF and sometimes Particle board material for several reasons, but primarily the boards are stable and will not warp or crack. The material also helps my designs stand out and keeps the price down. I trim around the top of the playing holes and keep a good spacing between the holes to make my boards easier to play. The pegs store on back under a stainless steel cover that is held on by magnets. I put a keyhole slot on the back of every board so they can hang up and kept out of the way. They could be decoration for a game room, or just hang in a closet out of the way.
