This is a fun and easy project that can be finished in a day. It's pretty simple, requiring minimal tools and minimal experience with woodworking. Made from a solid block of wood with holes drilled out to store the marble play pieces when not in use. It's the perfect little game to set out on your coffee table for guest to play with or admire. I hope you enjoy making your own Tic-Tac-Toe game set as much as I did.

Step 1: Materials & Tools

You will need for this project:

  • A block of wood 3" X 3" X 1" ( can be thicker if you'd like)
  • Sliver of wood 3" X 1" X 1/8" for the door
  • 8 Marbles
  • A small screw
  • Black paint and thin paint brush (if you use one color of marble you can paint X's and O's on them)
  • Finish of your choice (stain, polyurethane, etc.)
  • Drill
  • 3/4" paddle bit
  • 3/8" drill bit (optional)
  • Dremel tool with engraving bit #191
  • small drill bit to match the size of your screw
  • A Clamp
  • Sand paper
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
