A friend of mine swung by the house yesterday to borrow a couple of my large coolers that I use for hunting, to pick up mud bugs for a party this weekend. He hasn’t been over to the house / shop in next to forever, and seems to have forgotten the projects I have been putting out. So upon being rather surprised by my shop, he asked…
“Could I trouble you to make a washer toss game for this weekend?”
I said sure, you get the material to me ASAP, give me a couple of evenings to get it done, and you’ll have your game…
We came up with a materials listing, and found it called for 1×2, well I have a mess of 1×6 left over from my fence project. So I volunteered that material (I want to get rid of it…)
So upon coming home tonight, I ripped the 1×6 into 1×2s, cut them to length, and started putting together the washer boxes (3 of the 6 complete, the remaining 3 are 75% complete, just got too hot and didn’t want to turn the AC on. Being cheap right now…)
So what’s left? Finish the 3 boxes up, get friend to deliver the plywood (I don’t have enough scrap) and a small box of deck screws. Cut the ply to size, measure and mark the hole locations, cut the washer holes, build the frame, attach the washer boxes, attach the top, apply carpet, install lead out rope, and catch hasps and I am done. This should be a couple of hours more work….
I will be posting this as a completed project with pics once it’s done, maybe with some pics of the crawfish boil!
