Wood Labyrinth game

12-26-2009 12:48 AM by Stevinmarin | 16 comments »

Hi all, Thank you so much for all your comments on my ornament post. I am convinced: this is a great community. When I was a kid, a great toy was nothing more than a stick. And we had to walk ten miles to school in snowstorms. Uphill. Both ways. A cardboard box was a luxury. But I do remember getting a wood labyrinth one Christmas. It really grabbed my attention and enthralled me for hours. And frustrated me to no end. So this year I decided to make a labyrinth for my son Wyatt, w...

Incidental Fermat Projects #4: New and Festive

12-12-2012 02:22 PM by vipond33 | 13 comments »

Not so long ago I blew my brains out on Christmas building. Starting in mid September then I made 21 different things, for a bunch of real different people. It was worth it yes, but I was mentally finished by the end. This year is wiser, lazier and lighter with only 5 types, some 9 pcs. but good ones, mostly culled from my favourites at LJ. Here are three. As is my custom I make something for my boss each year, by way of saying thank you for letting me have free access to our shop t...

Connect 4 game

07-12-2010 03:19 PM by Stevinmarin | 11 comments »

Remember Connect 4? It’s a fun little game in which players try to, well, connect four colored disks in a row. This is an easy build that you can do complete in an afternoon. Dealing with 42 holes and 42 disks gets a little monotonous though. But just remember: 42 is the answer to life, the universe, and everything. If you would like to try one out, here's my template to get it all set up.

Fun outside game for the family

01-13-2010 04:41 PM by David Craig | 10 comments »

Not exactly woodworking, but someone could make it a wood project. Even though it is cold and snowy out, Spring is around the corner :) (Yes, I try to be an optimist sometimes). I am sure quite a few of you heard of this but, until last summer, I never heard of this game. It is called Ladder Golf and the goal of the game is to earn points by throwing a bolero (two golf balls connected by a piece of rope) and wrapping them around one of the rungs of a ladder. I made mine out of PVC for easy po...

My Favorite Lunatic Maze Puzzle Review!

02-02-2014 02:29 AM by mja979 | 7 comments » From Kevin Sadler’s PuzzleMad “Burling about Some time ago, I was spontaneously contacted via Google plus (which is odd for me because I did not know what G+ was and didn’t know that I had signed up for it!) Marcus Allred has been designing the most beautiful wooden mazes for over a year now. I first drooled over his work when he posted them on the Renegades forum and received advice about crafts...

Name that Power Tool!

04-17-2010 08:19 PM by Stevinmarin | 7 comments »

Since I’m in the middle of a project this weekend (well, more like the planning stage) I thought I would post a and older video I posted on YouTube a while ago. It’s the game show that’s sweeping the nation! Take your time and see how many you can get right. At the end, you will win — absolutely nothing! However, I have a real sweepstakes running on my web site where you can win an actual Mere Mortals prize! Be one of the cool kids! Sign up before the end of the month (M...

Quest for a unique cribbage board #1: Design and construction technique - Advice?

10-11-2008 04:21 AM by Heyz | 5 comments »

I’ve got an idea to build my dad a cribbage board for Christmas. What’s going to make it unique is that I’d like to inlay the tracks with three separate species of wood into a nice maple base. So now the question is, how difficult will this be? I’d like the grain to follow the track, and so will need to bend the wood to follow the contour of the track – I’d prefer this over cutting the track shape out from a solid piece. I have a little bit of exp...

Cornhole Board Tutorial #1: Introduction

12-08-2012 02:53 AM by StephenSchaad | 5 comments »

Hello Everyone. I have been enjoying lots of posts and classes on this website and I wanted to contribute something as well. I have built many cornhole sets over the past 7 years since my father, sister and I built our first. I believe our current design is great for a portable, regulation sized set. I know there are many tutorials on the web for building sets but this is mine. They are easy to build and when you get the hang of it, you can turn out a two boards in about an hour. I...
