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...

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.

Marble Tic-Tac-Toe Game

03-20-2013 02:21 PM by Daris | 1 comment »

Here was an easy project that I did recently; a Marble Tic-Tac-Toe Game. You only need one board for this project and it’s something you can build in an afternoon. Here is my attempt at making a video of how I made it, and as always you can check out my website at: www.woodlogger.com to see more projects and videos of what I’m doing in the shop.I also put up a listing of free project plans that you might find useful.

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...

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...

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...

Making a Game for $5.00 #1: Starting Out

12-18-2009 02:54 AM by Deela40 | 4 comments »

The Bible study I am a part of is having a party for Christmas. Each person is supposed to bring one gift, spending no more than $5.00. I saw this as a challenge. $5.00 isn’t much and I wanted to offer something of higher value. Lucky for me, my wife recently brought home some free pieces of wood. She works at an art gallery and they were getting rid of some random things. She saw some wood they had used as plaques that were going to be tossed. As she is industrious and thoughtful,...

Cornhole Board Tutorial #2: Materials, Tools and First step

12-08-2012 04:43 PM by StephenSchaad | 2 comments »

In this section I’m going to cover the tools and materials needed and the first step in making the boards. Here are a few examples of boards I’ve built. If you’ve never played cornhole before, it’s essentially horseshoes. You toss bean bags on to the boards and you get three points for making it in the hole, and one point for making it on the board. You play in teams and throw against the other team. I’ll include rules in the last post. Tools: Power DrillPower DriverJig Saw or ...

Cornhole Board Tutorial #4: Cutting and Installing Ends, Finishing the Frame

12-10-2012 04:25 PM by StephenSchaad | 0 comments »

This lesson will complete the frame of the boards. Measure the distance between the two side frames. This will be the measurement of the end pieces. Make sure you measure this correctly, too large can be trimmed down, but too short will be waste. I use 4×4’s to hold the boards up. Make sure to flush up the end piece with the plywood and not the side piece. It’s common that the sides can be longer but these will be trimmed down with a router or sander later. Predr...
