1. 1 bottle of wood glue
2. 12 1-inch wood screws
3. 3 1/6th of an inch thick boards
4. 5 1/4-inch thick square dowels
5. 5 1-inch thick boards
6. 3 1/8-inch wooden dowels
7. 1 marble
Now in terms of tools, this is what you'll need in handy:
1. A drill (or drill press)
2. drill bit (in order to put in the wood screws)
3. 11/16 spade drill bit (I'll explain that one later on)
4. a saw of some kind (scroll saw I preferred)
5. A file (in case you want to have smooth edges for it then)
Once you have gotten those materials we are ready for the next step. (proceed to step two.)
Step 1: Measurements of the Materials
Wooden board #1 (2): 11 1/2 inches long and 3 inches tall.
Wooden boards # 2 (2): 13 inches long and 3 inches tall
Short dowels (2) : 4 1/2 inches
Long dowel : 15 inches
Base wood plate 13x12 1/2 inches
Inner/ exit part of the maze plate 11 1/2x11 3/4
Maze plate 11x11 1/4
Square dowels: 1: 4 3/4 inch
2: 2 3/4 inch long 1/8 inch thick
4 pole holes 1 7/8 tall holes
Handle 5/6 of an inch
Step 2: Making the Bottom of the Structure
This is where your going to need your drill and saw. With the spade drill bit, drill at the bottom opposite ends at the front facing wood, and have it have a decline to it in order to create a way for it to easily come out later on.
Now for the ?? Wooden dowels we need to have ? Inch tall incision in the center of each of the four boards, which is ?? Inches for the center. So after you mark that spot, you'll need to drill with a ?? Inch drill piece. Then with the saw of your choice, you saw it to length until you've reached the measurements and then carve it out until your dowel is able to fit.
put the ??inch boards parallel to each other, then do the same to the other 2 boards you have and make it into a square, then with you drill, use the drill bit in order to put the wood screws in ( make smaller holes with a drill bit so as to have an easier time putting the screws in) .put two screws on each corner as to keep it together.
Now for the bottom part of this, you would use the ?? Inch thick piece of wood and make sure your measurements are correct, the with the help of your drill and its drill bit, you can now put the last four (or more) screws to connect the bottom to the 4 boards themselves.
Voila, you completed step 3!!!
Step 3: Inside the Structure
Step 4: The Maze Its Self
1. 7 1 inch
2. 1, 2 1/4 inch
3. 1, 1 3/4 inch
4. 2, 2 1/8 inch
5. 2, 2 1/2 inch
6. 1, 7 1/2 inch
7. 1, 2 inch
8. 2, 3 1/2 inch
9. 2, 1 1/2 inch
10. 1, 3 3/4 inch
11. 1, 1 1/4 inch
12. 1, 5 1/2 inch
For the marble, you will need to have the hole be able to fall through it with ease, so with you trusty drill and 11/16 spade bit, you can drill the right holes where ever you would like on there.
