  7. Wood Maze

    I was inspired to make this maze after attending the Portland Woodworking show this weekend. Legacy was there selling their CNC machines (I own one) and used a project like this to draw in the crowd. It will make a nice stocking stuffer for my nephew…once I find a marble or ball bearing that...

  9. 3D Magnet-Maze toy for my kids

    Here are some pictures from a recent toy project that did. I started by carving a 2D maze prototype with a Shinwa Full Size Carving Tool Set. When I had finished carving it, I put a steel ball bearing in and covered the maze with a thin plastic product called flexipane (or so they called it at...
  10. 10 Cent Maze

    This is Steve Ramsey's 10 cent maze that he shows how to bulid on Woodworking for Mere Mortals. But, mine is a bit more complex, comprising eight interior layers instead of three. It is made out of Birch and I believe the sides are Douglas Fir. Okay, so the Birch is plywood. There are four...

    My son had to make a board game based on a book for a school project. Of course it had to become a woodworking project. We made a marble course game based on the book the Roar. The theme was kids trying to escape over a walled city To paradise. It is actually pretty challenging to get...
  15. Anniversary present for my wife

    I made this jewelry box for my wife for our 12th anniversary this past weekend. This was the first time making something like this and I learned a lot for the next project. I used maple with Georgian Cherry gel stain and topped it off with a few coats of lacquer.
  16. An a-MAZE-ing cutting board

    Well, this took about 3 weeks of on and off work. Gluing mostly. I had seen some cutting boards that kind of looked like a maze so I figured why not make a maze. It turns out to be a real pain. It's almost impossible to get all the pieces the exact size and then glued up the exactly the same...
  17. Losing my marbles - A tale of two games

    Wooden games are a pleasure to build and own. They satisfy you in the work, they satisfy your progeny, often allow a fabulous interaction with them and all with the tactile feel and look of wood that is not duplicated in plastic. Chances are they'll be passed on, perhaps for generations. "Look...
  18. "Discombobulate"

    "Discombobulate" was inspired by a clear plastic toy 3-D maze I had when I was little. It was about 2.5" cubed and used a .125" steel ball. This one uses 1" steel balls and is 7" cubed. There are 4 levels to get through before the ball will fall out. It does not open and does include a trap...
