  • 1 - Wooden hanger
  • 2 - Chicago bolts or similar
  • 2 pieces of 1 inch x 2 inch wood stock – each cut to 12 inches
  • 2 pieces of ½ inch square wood pieces (or similar) – each cut to 5 inches in length with angled ends

  • Sandpaper

Art Board “A” is top board

Art Board “B” is for bottom board

 

Instructions:

  1. Cut wooden hanger to use angled parts as handles – cut each handle to approximately 8 inches in length with bulky part to fit into notches cut in step 2
  2. Using hand saw or jig saw cut two notches / openings – 1.5 inches wide on both sides of art board “A” – each opening to fit handles when assembled – use chisel and hammer to remove section and sand rough edges
  3. Draw ½ circle at bottom centre of board “A” – creating a hole for marble to fall thru – diameter of ½ circle 1.5 inches – use chisel and hammer to remove section and sand rough edges
  4. Using hand saw or jig saw cut one notch / opening – 2 inches wide on bottom short side of art board “B” – opening to allow marble to come out of pinball game – use chisel and hammer to remove section and sand rough edges
  5. Glue the 5 inch - ½ inch square wood pieces to angle / block off lower corners on sides of board “B” cut out – these pieces will direct the marble to come out the cut out
  6. Position board “B” on flat surface and then position board “A” overtop board “B” – ½ circle cut out in board “A” to be placed over cut out on board “B”
  7. Place handles in cut outs made in board “A” - position handles to allow space between ends so when rotating, the handles do not make contact
  8. Mark drill holes in handle to go thru handle and thru sides of board “A” and “B” – use a smaller drill bit for pilot hole and then use larger drill bit – larger bit to fit Chicago bolt
  9. Drill holes thru face of board “A” for marble to fall thru – use a drill bit slightly larger than your marbles
  10. Secure wooden dowels, knobs and small round wooded pieces to face of board “A” – secure with small screws from behind and glue – for smaller diameter dowels, drill holes thru board “A” the diameter of the smaller dowels and push dowel thru board “A” and secure to board “B” with wood glue – secure smaller dowels at the end when board “A” and board “B” are secured together
  11. Paint or stain boards as desired
  12. Glue 2 pieces of 1 inch x 2 inch wood stock – each cut to 12 inches – lay over top of one another and glue to underside of board “B” at the top to angle pinball assembly
  13. Glue board “A” and “B” together with board “A” being on top
  14. Secure handles in place with Chicago bolts
  15. Add elastic bands wrapping 2 or more dowels / wooden pieces
