My sister got married this past summer. Prior to the wedding, she contacted me and asked me to make a Jenga style game for her and her husband-to-be for their wedding gift. She planned to have the guests sign the blocks instead of a guest book. When’s the last time you looked at the guest book from your wedding?

It’s made from birch and walnut, with General Finishes Arm-R-Seal. Looking at pictures of the real thing, I thought it would be cool to have a logo on the blocks; so I asked my mom to make one that looked similar to the original. As it turned out, she had already designed the invitations, etc; so she integrated some of their design.

All in all, I am happy with the way they turned out. ...Now, I better hurry up and finish some projects for my wife!

I’m sure they loved it. I sure did. Looks like it was made in America and you can’t beat that. Gotta try a set of these. Thanks for posting

Love it. Unique and certainly will be reviewed more frequently than a guest book.

Great job!
