Around here all the popular breweries have a giant Jenga. It's a great game to have at home too and here's how to make one!

Step 1: Tools and Materials

Tools

This can be done with as little as a handsaw, but you'll see in the video that I used a chop saw, a table saw and a band saw. Having a sander makes things easy too, but you can just use sandpaper.

  • Sander or sandpaper
  • Hammer

  • Kiln Dried Doug Fir (see cut list below)
  • ¼" plywood (see cut list below)
  • 4ea. 16d nails
  • 4ea. #6 nails
  • Glue
