52 Weeks #38: Two Games finished.

10-03-2011 03:00 AM by clieb91 | 1 comment »

So this week I was able to put some finishing touches on two of the items I will be offering up at the craft fair. My tic-tac-toe games, and some sets of Bewitching Cubes. For those not familiar with the Bewitching Cubes; I found the them in E.M. Wyatt’s “Puzzles In Wood”, the object is to orient each of the cubes so that each face shows the numbers 1-6.These three sets are made out of various woods which I forget right now and burned using Walnut Hollow Number Stamps...

Reward Board #1: Design Sketch

03-23-2011 04:44 PM by hodgepodge | 2 comments »

My significant other and I decided it would be neat to have some sort of way to track the little ones good behavior, so we came up with the Reward Board. The children will have pieces (whatever they choose to be) that have dowels in the back. Each good deed will leave them closer to the star on the right. Once they get there they can exchange for a prize or continue to save for a bigger prize (this is kept track by little stars that go in the three holes to the left of their name). ...

52 Weeks #9: Week 9- Practice, Mazes and finally a Lathe Project

03-07-2011 03:50 AM by clieb91 | 0 comments »

Wow I am only 9 weeks into this series and yet it seems to have been going for much longer. I did not get nearly as much shop time this week as I did last. But I managed to make some time to continue to practice with the lathe and I very happily finally posted my first official Lathe Project . To go along with my lathe I have been searching LumberJocks and various other places on the web for ideas for a sharpening jig and a band saw log mill. I have decided on the basic design of the sharpen...

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.

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...

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...

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...

Making a Game for $5.00 #5: The Finished Product - Shut the Box

12-23-2009 07:37 PM by Deela40 | 4 comments »

This blog series is about my task to find a gift for $5.00. I decided to make the game Shut the Box purchasing what I needed, spending no more than the $5.00 limit, along with using materials I already had. This is the final post in the series. As mentions in post #4, I had not planned on spraying the tiles with a clear finish. I decided to do this because I was afraid the numbers I had painted on would easily wear off. When I used the spray, I created a problem as it made the tiles ju...

Making a Game for $5.00 #4: Putting it Together

12-21-2009 06:25 PM by Deela40 | 0 comments »

To summarize for those of you are just joining this series, I needed to find a gift for $5.00 for a Christmas party. I thought it would be fun to see what I could make, using what I had and spending no more that $5.00 on anything else I needed. I decided to make the game Shut the Box. Thus far, I have spent $3.65. For a more details, check the other posts. The oil was dried from the previous nights application so next task was to get the numbering on the tiles. I used the 1-inch stenc...

Making a Game for $5.00 #3: Prepping the Tiles

12-20-2009 01:57 AM by Deela40 | 3 comments »

Last night I worked on getting the tiles cut up and prepped for painting the numbers. I decided to go with 12 tiles as opposed to 10. I wouldn’t have enough room to put the numbers on 10-12 if I made all the tiles the same size as they would bee to small to get two numbers on. I remedied this by making two different sizes. I made nine tiles sized (7/8 inch) for numbers 1-9 and three (1 9/16 inches) for numbers 10-12. After I finished all the measurements, I used my miter saw to make ...
