I've always wanted one of these games, but they are always just so damn expensive. So today, I'm gonna teach everyone who reads this how to make one. This is my first instructable, so it might suck;)
Step 1: Materials
You will need:
An 11x3in (28x7.5cm) Plank of wood about a half-an-inch thick.
A 3x3.5in (7.5x9cm) Plank of wood about a quarter inch thick.
A Carving Knife.
2 Metal Rods about 13 inches (33cm) long or longer.
A Golf Ball.
4 Nails (or more).
Sharpie Pen (or other PERMANENT marker).
Step 2: Making the Main Parts
Carve six holes in the larger plank about the size of a golf ball, each about a little bit less than an inch apart. IMPORTANT: ALWAYS REMEMBER, MEASURE TWICE, CUT ONCE.
Step 3: Making the Main Parts, Cont.
Grab the smaller plank and measure 2.5 inches up and then carve a line about a quarter inch by 3in (3/4x7.5cm) the longer measurement being horizontal. AGAIN ALWAYS REMEMBER: MEASURE TWICE, CUT ONCE.
Step 4: Time to Assemble!
Now, attach the small piece (with nails) to the big piece, like an L. The 3in from the big to the 3.5in from the small.
Step 5: Inserting the Rods
Insert the remaining two nails at the opposite end of the larger plank, not the one attached to the smaller plank. Insert the rods into the slit in the smaller plank, and then super glue the left rod to the left nail, and the right rod to the right nail. Leave to dry as directed on box or bottle.
Step 6: SHARPIE TIME
Take your Sharpie (black recommended) and in this order from the smaller plank write (above the holes; hole-in-one, eagle, birdie, par, bogey, double bogey.
Step 7: FELT (optional Step)
Put felt in each of the holes and underneath the plank, if you'd like. I'd recommend it. I use green because it's like the golf course grass.
Step 8: YOU'RE DONE
Put the golf ball on the rods at the bottom and play, hope you like my instructable.
