Yard sized double 12 dominoes. Meant to be played in the yard :)

Each domino is 5” x 10”, using 3/4” pine left over from another project. Scaled from a set my wife has. Simple pine construction, each hole was made using a Forstner bit, drilled to approximately 1/4” deep. All positioned using a centering jig and laying them out about an inch off the edges.

Blackened in with some left over stain, then clear coated all surfaces.

Have fun :)

I suppose you need a few wheelbarrows or wagons to carry your hand.

Looks like fun.

Now there is a brilliant project for all that hoarded up off cut material!
No chance of a piece getting lost under or down the back of the lounge.

Oh yes now I remember isnt everything bigger in Texas !!
