Introduction: Wooden K'NEX

About: I'm16 and in my free time I control cockroaches, weld, make canoes from duct tape, 3D print, make helmets, light big pieces of wood on fire, and other awesome stuff

K'nex is great and wood is great

put the two together and you get really great!

Step 1: Items & Tools Needed

  1. 7 1/2 in by 1 1/4 in piece of wood (mine was from part of a stake)
  2. a 4 in by 4 in square of wood

tools

  1. a saw
  2. a 1 in hole saw
  3. a 7/8 in hole saw
  4. a belt sander

Step 2: Measure

  1. find the middle vertically and mark it
  2. find the middle horizontally and mark it
  3. do this on all of the four sides

Step 3: Drill

after a little incident involving my hand and the saw i finally found the perfect way to build it!

drill where the horizantal and vertical middles meet using the 1 in hole saw then use the 1 1/2 in hole saw and drill right above the other hole

Step 4: Build the Rod

using the connector as a template mark the ends (see picture)

and use a belt sander to get the shape

Step 5: From Some Mistakes Come Good Things!

i messed up on a few and found a way to make different connectors!

Step 6: You Are Done!!

congrats you are done!

now go build something
