Remember Connect 4? It’s a fun little game in which players try to, well, connect four colored disks in a row. This is an easy build that you can do complete in an afternoon. Dealing with 42 holes and 42 disks gets a little monotonous though. But just remember: 42 is the answer to life, the universe, and everything.

If you would like to try one out, here's my template to get it all set up.

Hey Steve I have an idea for you’re shavings How about a wig all you need is a piece of nylon stocking and some glue. If you put all the curls on it right you’d look little Orfan Annie…......Just a thought. The game is cool I think I’ll attempt spending $ 18 to 20 For a $5.00 game. Sorry just being a smart A__!!!! ........Schloemoe

Brian, I was totally considering a drop-mechanism for this, as well as a sliding cap on top to keep the disks in. Alas, I couldn’t wrap my brain around anything easy and decided to keep it simple.

Nice project. I noticed your crosscut sled with what appears to be aluminum angle reinforcement. Do you have a video on making it? I want to make one, but every plan I see calls for 8/4 maple fences, which is hard to come by in FL.

Thanks in advance…

PS I really liked your nail trick video.
