||Hardwood or plywood for the base. You can make the ring toss game in a variety of
sizes; we used two pieces of 3/4" x 1.5" x 16" (20 x 40 x 400mm) and two pieces of
3/4" x 1.5" x 7.25" (20 x 40 x 180mm) plywood
||Wood screws or drywall screws. The length of the screws should be about 1.5 times the thickness
of the wood you are using - we used 1.25" (30mm) long screws.
||Wood dowel. We used a 3/4" (20mm) diameter hardwood dowel. You will need
five pieces about 5" (125mm) long.
||Paint. We used three different colors of standard craft paint.
||Rope, nylon preferred, but other types will suffice. We used three 16" (400mm) long ropes
that were 1/2" (13mm) in diameter.
||Copper couplings and construction adhesive to fuse the ends of the ropes into rings; alternatively
tape can be used.
||Polyurethane coating (optional). After the paint dries, you can follow with
a coat of clear polyurethane for increased durability.
