This is a giant jenga set that the cub scout den that I help with built last week. The picture is of them at camp this last weekend playing with it.

Good project idea to keep the young active kids busy! Are they made from standard 2X4 ’s?

Yes they are made from a standard 2×4 just cut to 10 1/2 inches in length. They had this so tall at one time that they couldn’t reach the top of it.

It may be worth mentioning that when choosing the timber for one of these sets, that the ‘best’ lengths should NOT be chosen.

Minor variations in each piece make removal from the stack easier – if they were all absolutely perfect it might be impossible to pull any out – so, for once, twisted and warped boards may be better!

You are correct the parent that donated these had them for several years and they are definitely not the best they all had a little warp and we had to sand some of them a lot to get rid of the rough edge on then.
