These boards come in a bewildering variety of shapes & formats. I have seen ones made of brass, others made of bone, but most are usually made of plain old wood. However, even wooden baords display a great variety in their construction.
Cribbage board- Jaques
This first example can be said to be representative of most of this species. It is made by Jaques of london , A famous maker of game equipment. It has 60 holes ( descounting the ones in which the pegs are placed in at the start), 30 on each side.
The pegs are stout little brass things. I coloured half of them black with a marker, so that I could distinguish them from the opposing side. Note the attractive trim down the middle of the board.
Another folding board, this one from the toy maker Hamley's. Again, it has 60 holes. Note the two cavities on either side of the board. These were meant to contain a deck of cards . The two cavaties in the middle of the board contain the cribbage pegs.
cribbage board- anon
This brightly coloured folding board posses 121 holes, as opposed to the above 60 holed versions. The board also has 3 tracks, making it possible for up to 3 players to use this board for scoring a game, whatever it may be.
As shown in the above photograph, the track of the board has to be coiled in order for all 121 holes to be fitted into it. Here is a view of the start....
...and the finishing hole ( No. 121)
The pegs are made of plastic, but only one of them survives.
