Cribbage Scoreboard

Len is a sociable person who enjoys a game of cribbage with visitors or with the carers at the group home where he lives.

Len is a sociable person who enjoys a game of cribbage with visitors or with the carers at the group home where he lives. However, Len is a quadriplegic and has very little hand strength, so regular cribbage scoring pegs are just too small for him to handle.

TAD volunteer Neale Taylor received a brief to make a scoring board with pegs the size of a 20 cent piece. But, as he said, ‘the board would have been more than a metre long and impossible to handle’.

Instead, Neale used a piece of cherrywood from a tree out of his garden to make four round pegs. He then took the sides off these, leaving straight-sided pegs which are still big enough for Len to handle easily but take up less space side by side.

Neale made the board itself from a plywood offcut. It measures 52cm long by 14.5cm wide and has a routed moulded edge. The finishing touch is a decorative clip art image which Neale modified on his computer, printed out and glued down the centre of the board.
