Busy processing orders—thank you to everyone who has ordered and for your patience as I create them all!
Busy night prepping orders. First step, drilling all the holes. Next step, wood burning. If you'd like a custom/made-to-order board in time for the holidays, order before December 10 to ensure enough time to make and ship your board!

About

Naturally inspired custom creations

North Country Craft started in the fall of 2016 as a side hustle, as many small creative businesses do. By the spring of 2017, Erin left her day job to pursue the world of small business ownership and freelance full force. She's since expanded her range of custom cribbage boards to cater to a wide variety of customization and sizes. She's also expanded to other woodburned and handcrafted items beyond the game of cribbage.

Each item is handcrafted and made by Erin, so no two pieces will ever be 100% identical. Each cribbage hole, wood burned line, paint stroke, and packaging is drilled, burned, painted, and cut by Erin. Being a one-woman operation has its learning curves and days of being overwhelmed, but at the end of the day, getting to create one of a kind custom creations for people brings such joy.

    There is a certain type of solace found living next to Lake Superior—a pseudo ocean filled with endless inspiration. Just as the seasons change and bring about new landscapes to explore, my work reflects this constant fluctuation of inspiration.

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

All of my custom cribbage boards are sealed prior to shipment. If your board ever starts to appear dried out, follow the below care, depending on your board style:

Bamboo state-shaped boards—simply add a coat of cutting board oil to rejuvenate the bamboo and woodburned surface.

Bark-edged boards—these boards have all been sealed with multiple coats of Danish oil. To rejuvenate, simply follow the application instructions for Danish oil (golden oak or natural). Alternatively, any matte, semi-gloss, or gloss spray or brush-on poly may be added over top. Simply follow the application instructions on the can to ensure proper application and results.

Wholesale availability

I do offer the majority of my board styles in wholesale. Send me a message to discuss what board style and availability.
