Thia is one of the games I used to spend hour playing at Grandma House, dose that bring back memories.
I up-dated this on for the grand kids. I made the top to tilt and with a slide latch, to hold it from flipping down.
So that it can be put away with the top tilted up and take less space to store it.
I made the pedestal with 4 legs to make it more stable. Then as kids we always had to look for the marbles form time to time, so I solved the problem by making a box with a slide door to hold all the marbles and the two dice, Cutting the half round hole for the marbles was easy using the Legacy woodworking machine with the tilting bed, I cut the groves on a taper , so that the marbles will roll out when the table is level. then fastened it to the bottom of the table , So you will never have to look for the marbles and dice.
I hope more than just the little kids get enjoyment from this project.
