Sandhill the dimentions are 11 Long x 5 Wide x 3 3/4 High excluding the pucks. The pucks are 3/4×2 (I used a 2 1/8” hole saw without the center bit) spacing between the pucks is 3/4 and they are approx 3/8 from edges.

Very cool! My kids (who are all lego nuts) think they are awesome. I have a feeling a similar project may be in my future.
