Hello! I just wanted to reach out to express my gratitude. The table arrived yesterday and it's even better than I expected. I think my brother will love it! Thanks so much, your craftsmanship is fantastic. Definitely will recommend to friends and family. Cheers, Matthew D., Toronto, ON
 
Thank you dearly for the beautiful cribbage board. It was a gift to my husband from our kids and he loves it. The kids and I love it too! It is beautifully made and arrived in perfect time for Christmas. We've taught some friends how to play and have enjoyed it with our kids. We look forward to many games to be played on our beautiful board. Thank you again!  Nancy M.,  Homer Glen, IL
 
Thank you so much, David!!!  I appreciate the tips also!!  Yes, I was ok with some variations of the holes but some, the drill bit really pushed.  But any way, I’m not giving up!  I’ll send a photo when I get a finished piece.  It will be later in the year but I think I would like to have a special board made for my mom but I think I will leave it to you, the experts. I’ve really enjoyed doing business with you and your wife.  I spoke to her a couple of times and she is a pleasure to talk with.  Your extra touches like the scoring card and deck of cards was so nice.  My experience with you two has been nothing short of spectacular and these days it is so refreshing!  I have passed the word along and will continue to.  Mindy I.,  Omaha, NE
 
Hi Marty and David,  Receiving your newsletter with a picture of my board today, I realized that I forgot to tell you that the Hugo board has safely arrived here in Berlin.  It really is a beautiful piece of art and has already found its place on the wall.  My wife and I have already played many games on it and we both love it!  Best regards,  Marcus S.,  Berlin, Germany
 
Hi Marty, Just wanted to let you know the cribbage board has arrived at my house today!!!!!!!  It is beautiful and I love it!!!  The difficulty I have now is not giving it to him before xmas day, lol. Thank you so much for your professionalism and workmanship on making it, along with priority on delivery etc. I am proud of the fact that I am your first New Zealand customer and I will spread the word amongst friends. Once again your outstanding workmanship on the making of the cribbage board is fantastic along with your help and friendliness along the way.  I wish you and your family a very happy Christmas and a Happy New Year.  I also wish you all the best for your business and future years ahead.  cheers, Michelle C.,  Hillsborough, New Zealand
 
Dear Marty, Loved the cribbage boards & thanks so much for getting them to us by Christmas! Have another grandson in the wings, waiting for his.  I'll be ordering another in a couple of months. Kathy D.,  Sutton, MA

Dear David and Marty, THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR THE ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL CRIBBAGE BOARD!  We received it 2 days before we were going to have all our  children and their families plus a few more people for dinner Saturday before Christmas.  As much as I wanted to open the package we decided to wrap it unopened and all enjoy the surprise together.  It was really worth the wait, because those two "kids" were BLOWN AWAY!  Matt said "Wow!  Birdseye maple!  That is awesome!". (He knows his woods from the set of 5/8 x 5/8 x 3 1/8 blocks I made for him when he was a little boy. I used practically every hardwood and exotic wood safe enough for a child that I could find at Southern Lumber Co here, and he still has them at age 30!)  David, you are not only a very skilled craftsman but a very talented artist as well! Thank you both for your personal attention and meticulous attention to detail in producing this fine piece of art which I am sure Matthew and Desiree will cherish forever. Best wishes to you for a very Happy and prosperous New Year! Sincerely and gratefully, Chuck J.,  San Jose, CA

Took a while for us to get around to xmas gifts with my boys since they were out of town but he just opened it, and pardon my French, this board is the fing s***!!! He loves it i love it!!! Great job customer for life.  Christoper S.,  Fair Oaks, CA
 
Hi Marty, Just wanted to let you know he board arrived today, and I felt like it was a Christmas present to myself, I was so excited to open it!

Good morning, We gave the cribbage board as a Christmas present, and they just loved it!  We’ll send you a picture in the next couple of weeks. Monica B.,  Jamul, CA

Dear Marty, I wanted to thank you so much for your hard work and craftsmanship.  My father, a Vietnam Vet, loves the cribbage board.  It arrived yesterday afternoon in perfect condition.   I can picture him and his five grandsons (ages 17 - 27) playing around the board together.  He also likes the fact that he can display it on the wall when not in use. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!! Best Regards, Denise H., Dayton, MD

I will be telling ALL my friends and family about your work!  Happy Holidays!!!  Kayla M.,  Nantucket, MA

Sincerely, Eric F.,  Cottonwood Heights, UT

Dear Marty and David:  Thank you so much for the beautiful cribbage board that arrived today!  My Mom, who is 98 and has been playing cribbage since she was about 4 or 5, wanted something really special to give my brother for Christmas. She is so thrilled with what arrived today! It reminds her of her grandfather's board - the man who taught her to play all those years ago in her small Massachusetts fishing village.  Thank you for the quick service and again, thanks for the beautiful board!  Wishing you a very happy Thanksgiving!  Best regards,  Debby B.,  San Antonio, TX
 
Hello, I just wanted to send a quick thank you for the beautiful cribbage board. My mother-in-law LOVED it (I caved and gave it to her early as I was too excited to hold onto it). Thank you for adding in the speedy shipping! It arrived so quickly. I will definitely be recommending your business, and most likely ordering a couple more as gifts!  Thanks, Amber C.,  Kamloops, BC
 
Hi Marty & David,  The 5-track custom engraved board just arrived today.  Thanks for packing it so well and the nice engraving work you did.  Not only is it the hard to find 5-track but the quote is perfect for my brother-in-law who I have heard use the same quote when he is slightly behind in the game.  I can’t wait for Christmas now because I know he’ll love it as much as I do.  Best regards, Stan L., Shoreview, MN
 
Thank you for my absolutely beautiful cribbage board, I cannot express in words how happy I am with the finished product.  It is stunning!  Kathleen W.,  South Yorkshire, England
 
Marty/David:  I just received the cribbage table today in New Hampshire.  I have to tell you that I am so pleased and excited about the table.  It is a work of art.  I was a bit concerned about potential damage in transport.  But it was packaged lovingly and safely.  And the speedy delivery was very impressive – only two days from the other side of the country!  Thank you so much for your attention to detail and craftsmanship. Mike S.,  Salem, NH
 
The cribbage board arrived and it is beautiful!  I bought it for my husband and he absolutely loves it.  Great quality and working with you has been very easy, you've been extremely responsive and helpful.  Thank you so very much!  :-)  Terri H.,  Sacramento, CA
 
All I can say is WOW!!!!!!!  David out did himself on this one, it is the most beautiful cribbage board I have ever seen.  A huge thanks to you David, you did a super job.  The patch, coins, dolphins and the engraving of the submarine could not have been done any better.  I have to say that David is definitely a MCBC...........”Master cribbage board craftsman”.  You don’t know how proud I am of this board and I know the Veteran “gang” is going to flip out when they see it.  I will forward photo’s later.  I really appreciate the 15 4 2 stickers and beautiful pegs.  I want to thank Marty for all her kind emails, keeping me updated on how things were going.  You two are the best ever. With sincere and warm regards,  Steve A.,  Springfield, OR
 
Hello Marty and David;  Just picked up my new cribbage board at the Post Office. Looks great I can't wait to use it. I will definitely tell others about you. Thanks for the speedy service.  Terry Y.,  Hillsborough, NH
 
Hello Marty and David, I am So Happy with the custom board you made for me.  I showed it to my husband and my brother; they were both amazed at how awesome it looks.  Our Dad is going to absolutely love it when he sees it in June for his birthday / Father's Day.  Can't wait to give it to him.  I'm certain we'll have lots of fun with this board for years to come. I must compliment you on your professionalism and creativity. It can't be easy to work with customization, especially when trying to interpret an idea from a customer's imagination and then to be able to present it in a way that the customer pictures it to be.  This has been a positive wonderful experience and I will definitely tell others to visit your website. Thank you again for helping us create what will no doubt become a family heirloom.  Francine N.  Berlin, NH
 
Thanks a lot, Marty.  The board is a big hit.  I've played on a LOT of cribbage boards in my time, but this is really special.  All you need to do is work on the cribbage demographic...too many of us old geezers dying off without transferring cribbage enthusiasm to the next generation.  Regards, Ted K.,  Pelham, NY
 
Hi David,  Thank you so much for the gorgeous cribbage boards. They arrived on Thursday at my mother’s home and I love them. Thanks for all the extras that you included and please know that you are a part of this tournament celebrating my Dad and all his brothers. I will be in-touch next year for another cribbage board. Please thank Marty for all her help also. Sincerely, Brenda M.,  Nantucket, MA
 

Hi Marty & David, Thank you so much for the gift. You are a very kind hearted family business. Glad to have found you on the internet. Not all the people we find on the net are like you .

Maureen L.,  Ste Anne des Plaines QC
 

Marty—Well, the cribbage boards were a huge hit. It brought tears to my son’s eyes. He and his friends LOVE them. Would it be possible to order one more? No rush on this one though. It’s for my son. He gave his away to another friend who I hadn’t thought to buy one for.  I was so happy to open them and see them wrapped! I thought I was going to have to do that and the stickers were awesome too. Thank you again. Best, Michele N.,  Edwards, CO

 
Hi Marty,  I just wanted to send you a note about the cribbage board you sent last week. It turned out better than I could have imagined! The St. Thomas logo and inscription are gorgeous and the board itself is incredible. I plan to give it as a gift next week and I cant wait to see the look on their face. I plan to lose many games of cribbage on it! (she is a much better player than I) You were so helpful through the process and really made this gift possible so thank you so much!  -Matt B.,  Minneapolis, MN

We received our board today, it is wonderful, beautifully handcrafted.  My husband has macular degeneration and it has been more and more difficult for him to see where the peg holes are, this fixes that problem.  I may have trouble beating him now!  Juanita G.,  Mesa, AZ
 
Marty, Thank you very much for the cribbage board!  Zachary loved it.  He was so excited to get it that he didn't wait very long to break it in and play his first cribbage game on it.  Also, thank you for doing the expedited shipping.  That wasn't necessary but it was greatly appreciated.  I enjoyed working with you to create this memorable birthday present for Zachary.  I will certainly recommend you to my family and friends, and I will likely be ordering a few more boards from you in the near future.  Take care, Ian G.,  San Diego, CA
 
Marty,  I received my custom board to today, in time for me to give it as a gift to a special client.  It is absolutely beautiful and he is going to love it.  He invited me to his cabin in the back woods last winter and we spent the nights laughing and playing cribbage on a crappy little board that was hard for my older client to see, and they frequently complained about getting the pegs in the hole.  When I found your board online, I knew it would be perfect and I know he and his riding buddies will love it.  What I didn’t know is how spectacular the quality is.  Thanks for getting it to me faster than your published time frame, it will be enjoyed all winter in the deep woods of Clarkia, Idaho. Thank you and Regards,  Jared J.,  Spokane, WA
 
Marty, Board arrived this afternoon. Looks fabulous. Love it. Thanks. Later this month I'll take to the needlepoint store in Philadelphia. I can send you a final look when it is finished. And love the 15 for 2 sticker. Much better than running 16.2!  Best, Jim Z.,  Wilmington, DE

Hi, David and Marty, I am writing to thank you for my personalized two-track continuous mahogany cribbage board that I received this week in the mail. It is truly a beautiful work of art!
