Step 1: Materials
The materials needed to complete the project
-laser machine + required software
-1 12x24 1/8 thick piece of wood
-CAD software (ex. Autodesk Inventor, AutoCAD)
Step 2: Drawing and Lasering
Attached is the .dxf file i used in the lasering of the game.
When lasering make sure you fill the holes with color on the right board as that will create a place where a peg could be placed.
The game was created using a CO2 laser.
At you finished lasering you should end up with 8 pieces
Sanding all the laser parts should be done before assembling them.
Step 3: Assembly
Using the eight parts shown above place the base part first then attach the connectors making sure the the connectors of the same length face across from each other. Then place the board part on top of the connectors. This finishes the completion of the Peg solitaire game, you can either glue the board together or leave as is for a travel game set. Pieces may be created by cutting Dowel rods.
