First off credit to StevinMarin for great idea!!
I needed a Christmas gift for my Brothers and these fill be bill. Both are Grandpa’s, so what would make a great gift for a Grandfather….something to make their Grandchildren happy!! Making these started out as a good weekend project that grew into a full threes before I finished. I hope they like them!!!
I hand painted all the artwork with my untalented hands. I will consed they look pretty darn good.
I purchases 5 lbs of gumballs for the games, I hope that is enough ;-)
The gumballs actually make the “Plinko” sound as they hit the nails I have arranged in the field. In the process of making the balls I learned how to turn a sphere, BONUS! .....but after turning 5 or 6 I quickly realized I didn’t have enough time for all so I purchased the majority. I also turned the dowel used in picking up the gumball, that was pretty straight forward.
Thanks for looking and comments are always looked forward too!!
