This is a project my son and I built for his school carnival. It took us about 6 hours to construct. Most of the time was taken in painting and gluing all the pegs into place. It is made of plywood, peg board, dowels, and some 2X4 framing.

The object of the game is to release a wooden ball or token (called a plinko) along the top and land it in one of the 3 yellow O’s at the bottom of the board. It was great fun for the kids who played the game and even more fun for my son and me to build. There is nothing better than sharing time in the shop with one of your kids. Memories will be made today – are they worth remembering?

Thanks for looking.

You, Your Son, Bob Barker and Drew Carey al now have something in common, LOL

I wish I had kids and grand kids nearby to do projects with.

Keep it up, you’ll both cherish this time later in life.

I have a daughter that is only 7 months old but I cannot wait until she and I get to share these same kind of experiences. Nice job.
