Ordinary executives have ordinary desk-games to keep them from getting bored in between meetings and signing important pieces of paper.
Executive Makers need a Maker game to keep them from getting bored while they wait for soldering iron or glue-gun to warm up...
Step 1: Materials
This is one of those projects where a lot of materials and methods can be substituted without harming the final product.
I'm going to show you two versions, one made of coffee stirrers, one made with popsicle sticks (these are sticks sold for craft, not food use) and bamboo skewers.
You will also need string, and something to act as weights, such as modelling clay, scrap wood, or maybe those funny Chinese coins with a hole in the middle...
You'll need glue, and tools to cut or drill the sticks and stirrers.
Depending on your personal preferences, you may also want paints to make the finished set match your favourite executive's desk.
