I would apply the finish afterwards. I have made only two cribbage boards, but in both cases I had some tearout in drilling the holes.I am getting ready to make a cribbage board.... Do I put the finish on it BEFORE I drill the holes or AFTER?? If after, wont the finish get in the holes and clog them up? I know, STUPID question but I'm new at this.
This would be better as a separate thread in the Power Tools forum.New at this but don't know any better. I have a router and ordered a tounge and grove bits or bits . received one looks like for the tounge with a double cutter . Is there a separate bit for the grove? if not how does one use the bit to make the grove?
