Mean & Wroughten

Maker - Jeff Weeks

Maker Story

Crib Notes

Years ago, my then boyfriend, now husband taught me how to play cribbage, his family’s go-to card game. The game seemed very foreign to me at first (my family was more of a gin rummy crowd), but I quickly learned the thrill of making 15s, scoring double runs, and receiving a good kitty. Of course, all that scoring math made my head hurt a little, so I also grew to appreciate the helpful peg boards that cribbage players use to track who’s ahead.

Later I learned that cribbage boards come in all shapes and sizes. We had a small one for in-flight games, but nothing that would sit squarely on our table inviting hours of at-home play. Until now.

Jeff Weeks of Mean & Wroughten welds recycled materials and found metal objects into functional items like this weighty cribbage set. This distinctive, circular metal “board” with a curved wrench across the center would make any cribbage aficionado happy, and the clean, simple design would surely intrigue a novice. The warm glow of the metal means this piece holds its own in both formal and casual family rooms, and in warmer weather it would make a practical addition to a covered patio, as it won’t tip or blow over.

That’s one more gift scratched off my list. Any cribbage-lovers in your circle? Tell us what you think.
