My sister wanted me to make a Drinko game for her for a charity gold tournament. I had never done one before and I didn’t consult any plans but it seemed easy enough. She sent me a pinterest picture with 3” spacing of the nails and some dimensions to work off of and I had at it. Word to the wise, 3” is way too far more like inch and a half to get that real plinko effect. I made the whole thing out of cheap materials, spruce 2×4s and pine plywood. It turned out pretty good, not my best work but for quick and dirty, it turned out nice.

Anyways, I shot some video of the build and here is a quick tutorial for those interested in making one!

My wife hates the cap catcher I made for my garage, I think this will replace what I currently have. Strong work!
