Material List

Item Qty. Description
#1 - 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
#2 10 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.
#3 - Woodworking glue
#4 5 Wood dowel. We used a 3/4" (20mm) diameter hardwood dowel. You will need five pieces about 5" (125mm) long.
#5 - Paint. We used three different colors of standard craft paint.
#6 3 Rope, nylon preferred, but other types will suffice. We used three 16" (400mm) long ropes that were 1/2" (13mm) in diameter.
#7 3 Copper couplings and construction adhesive to fuse the ends of the ropes into rings; alternatively tape can be used.
#8 - Polyurethane coating (optional). After the paint dries, you can follow with a coat of clear polyurethane for increased durability.

Tool List

Drill press with forstner bit to match diameter of dowel
Hand drill with countersinking bit
Disk sander
Table saw
Router with rounding over bit
Candle and matches (to fuse end of nylon rope as a means of minimizing fraying)
