This mini indoor version of Baggo or Bean Bag Toss is designed to sit on a desktop or tabletop and well sized for a typical office cube. It is a fairly simple project – easy to build.
The free plans are available on our web page here .
We also made three videos giving a blow-by-blow account of the miniature game’s creation (using a minimal tool set – see below): part 1 - Marking and Cutting , part 2 - Assembly and Painting and part 3 - Sewing the Bean Bags .
The game’s platform dimensions are normally 2 feet by 4 feet. This small variant is 11 inches by 7½ inches. The measurements are chosen to maintain an approximation to the full-sized game’s relative dimensions, while being adjusted to take into account some of the practicalities of miniaturization (such as hole size). The parts positioning and points of measurement are designed to minimize the construction’s sensitivity to material thickness. Prototypes were made using 12mm plywood and 3/8” hardboard. The design is centered around ½” thick material.
Construction is done using relatively few and simple tools, of which only four are electric (including a sewing machine for the bean bags). The full list of tools used is:
- Hand held circular saw
- Orbital sander
- Electric drill, small drill bit and 2½” hole saw
- Bench, workmate or other surface with a vice
- Bevel gauge
- Try square
- Straight edge guide for saw (in other words, a straight piece of wood)
- Variety of clamps
- Paint brush and roller
- Sewing machine
- Rotary cutter (although scissors can be used instead)
While not necessary, if a table saw and/or drill press are available, use them!
This is our first submission. We hope you like it!
