Pinball Game

Materials & Tools:

  • 2 - Wooden art boards – both 12 x 16 inches
  • 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
  • Wood glue
  • Hand saw or jig saw
  • Chisel
  • Hammer
  • Sandpaper
  • Screwdriver
  • Drill & drill bits
  • Paint or Stain
  • Marbles
  • Wooden dowels, knobs and small round wooden pieces
  • Small screws
  • Elastic bands (optional)

 

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

 

Approximate Cost $25

Why you need a relationship contract and what goes in it:

 

  • You have a contract with your work, why shouldn’t you have a contract with your spouse?
  • Here’s what goes in it...
  • # of nights away: It breaks my heart to miss bath time with my three boys. Reading books under the covers. There are a finite number of those nights so it should hurt to miss them. But I travel for work. So we put one per week in our contract.
  • Family day: A full day with no cell phones, no friends, just the five of us. We chose to have one of these every weekend.
  • LNO / NNO: Leslie’s (my wife) night out / Neil’s night out. Dinner with a friend, live music by myself. We get our own stories and experiences to bring back to our relationship so we don’t just crash on the couch into a Netflix coma.
  • # of vacation days: A company tells you what you get, but you need to decide how many you need. Take some days of unpaid leave if you need to. I know I do.
