Well I thought I would make a 2 player game and I thought this would be perfect for me and my nephews to play. I took and glued a 1×10 and a 1×6 together to make a big square, clamped it good too.. Then put a star pattern on it, decided how big I wanted it(BIG) . So I used 3/4 forsner bit to make the holes for the balls, a lot of them..60 colored ones and about 60 in the middle!! ALOT! Then I measured the wood to a circle to cut , I done it after hole making so I would make sure everything was even. Then I taped off ends to paint colors and bought some 1” wood balls,( cant get this made just right:() painted them and put a clear coat on them to protect them, put poly on the board… It did take a couple days for this one.. 120 holes, 60 painted ball and holes, a lot of sanding so you can’t tell there was 2 pieces of wood in the making:) and now time to play with the kiddos. Lol
