Wanted a game to play in my small backyard and this seemed like a good choice. It is made from scrap 2×6. The washers are stored in slots cut on my slot mortiser The center post is made from 4” ABS coupling. Made the 1/2” box joints on my box joint jig Finish is an outdoor varethane.

This should provide you with hours of outdoor entertainment. Nice build Sean.

Neat job on the finger-joints.
did you make the box as a whole then run through your table-saw for 2 halves.

Norman. Here is the link for the rules. I put them 7 paces apart (roughly 21 feet).

Jinky. I made them as two separate boxes.
