plinko free plans: how to make a
Basic Description

animated intro
Here is a thoroughly enjoyable project that you can mount on any wall. It's a plinko display in which you place a thin puck at the top and let go. The puck randomly bounces its way amongst a series of pins to the bottom where it is held in place by some hidden magnets. While it may look simple, it takes patience and requires some precise work. We made ours to be 5' (1.5m) tall. We think that you will love making and playing with this project!

step:       2                      

Instead of providing a cutlist for the entire project, we are going to break the project down into manageable steps. We have chosen this method not only for simplicity and clarity; using the actual dimensions required by your work is superior and more accurate than precutting all of the pieces and assembling them at once. You should consider the dimensions we provide to be close guidelines: your work will dictate the precise dimensions that you will need.
We will start with the 1/2" (13mm) thick plywood panel. We cut ours to 21" (53cm) wide by 60" (150cm) long. None of the edges of the panel will be exposed; simply choose the best face and set it face up on your worksurface.
