1

Carve the wood

15 minutes

Open the project and carve the Workpiece labeled “wood base”. Any 1/2 wood or material should work.

2

Carve the acrylic

5 minutes

Next, go to the Workpiece labeled “acrylic cover”. Cut this out of any 1/16" thick acrylic.

3

Add the bearings

1 minute

I used 5/32 inch Diameter Chrome Steel Bearing Balls for the balls in this game.

4

Put the acrylic in

1 minute

I was able to press fit the acrylic into the wood (I used the inlay app to get the measurements right). I didn’t use any glue, and the top stays in nicely unless you bang in upside down on a table.

You can glue it if you would like!
