This was a very quick prototype build. Small piece of pine and a template. Z spray shellac to finish.

Some of these builds tell you to use 1/8” bit, or 7/64” bit for golf tees. I have found this way too small, at least for the cheap tees I have found and use. 11/64” seems to be the right answer, but test this for yourself, obviously.

For anyone that hasn’t used it, 3M #77 is awesome to attach templates. Spray on back of template, wait 30 seconds, attach. When done, peel off. Sometimes there is a little paper left, depending on how long it was attached.

Version two will most likely have magnets and hinges and compartments, but I really do like the simple satisfaction of this one.

My daughter loves this game. I may have to make it – thanks for the info re: drill size.

We had to make these as our first project in woodworking class in junior high back in the 1970s. No templates allowed – had to measure everything by hand, being slightly off on corner angles or hole placement lowered your grade. No premade tees allowed either, had to measure, cut and sand dowels by hand so that each one was precisely the same length. I did not get an A on the project, but I was the only one in class who could solve the puzzle (teacher hated me for that and the fact that I was hopeless with power tools – turned me off to woodworking for 20 years.)

Thanks for posting,
