I wanted to make an easy to make, easy to play game that other kids would be able to make. I made this version of it as a travel size, but you can make it a bigger size if you want. I got a broken jewelry box at Michaels for a dollar, but you can just make one if you want. I took off the top of it. Also I used small rubber bands and stretched them all the way across two inches from the end of the of the jewelry box
Tools: a wooden box about 8inches long 5inches wide, 10,1/4 x 20 nuts, two rubber bands, one piece of MDF, a wooden dowel rod, drill, scroll saw, felt pads, wood glue, fine grit sand paper, black spray paint, orange paint, yellow paint. an xacto knife.
Step 1: Design
Design the court on a piece of paper.
Step 2: The Court
I got a broken jewelry box, but you can make one your own, the box should be about 8inches long 5 inches wide. Sand the inside of the box so that the surface is as smooth as possible, also sand the outside.
Step 3: The Divider
I drew a line in the middle of the box so I would know were to put the MDF divider. then I measured the width of the box, so that I could cut the width of the MDF. Then I measure the height of the box so that I could cut it to size. Next I drew a line in the middle of a piece of MDF, then I measured the size of the nut after that I drew the size of the nut onto the piece of MDF then I cut out the size of the nut with the scroll saw, after that we gave it a little bit of room so it wouldn’t get stuck in the hole. Then I sanded the piece of MDF.
