My first project. Just a simple kubb set made from a 4×4 cedar post. I have a chunk left over to turn the batons from when I get a lathe.

Looked up the rules as I had never heard of this game. Sure is a different type game.

A most excellent game! Beat the heck out of boring corn hole. I made 2 sets with the second being white oak. I really favor the look of the cedar but wonder if it will hold up as cedar is kind of soft? Time will tell. You did a good job with the king top.

Do you have a bandsaw? That bandsaw jig to make dowels would be perfect for making the batons! No lathe needed. I think the oak or other fairly hard/ heavy/ dense woods would react better than the cedar to impacts. But the difference in the woods might throw an opponents game off <grin>

It’s a real fun game.

Cedar was probably not the best choice, but it sure is pretty and smells great.

I just sold my 10’ bandsaw so I can upgrade to a 14’. I’m looking at the Rikon, which is out of my price range, so I may be without for a bit. I’ll look into a dowling jig though. Thanks!

Kubb is a blast. It’s a great, social yard game. I’ve made a few sets as gifts.

No reason to let “no lathe” hold you up. For the batons, I recommend you make squares then rip the corners off to make octagons. Sand or plane them smooth but not round. The pieces will get beat up and dirty from use, whatever you make it from. Cedar will be fine. :)
