This is a GREAT improvement over Jenga, it has more pieces and it has mallets!. This game is very quick and easy to make. It is super sized and it can be stacked well over 5’ high. The mallets add to the fun for kids and makes the large size boards easier to move.
Step 1: Materials
4- - 10’ long 2”X3” pine (the radiata pine boards available at Home Depot are great for this project ,they are usually quite dry and it is a light weight pine.
A tape measure or ruler
saw (I used a table saw with a cross cut sled )
You can use whatever type of saw you have
Router with a round over bit
Hardhats (i found some at garage sales)
A game box for the set (I will a separate instructable.)
Step 2: Round over edges
Round over the edges of the boards with a router with a small round over bit.
If you don’ t have a router , or if you want to include small children in the build project, you can just soften up the edges with sandpaper.
Step 3: Trim ends off boards
Trim a thin piece of wood off one end of each board., to remove the paint on the end of the boards.
