Bag Toss Game
• 1/2" x 4' x 8' Sheet of Plywood
• 4 planks of 8' length 2" x 4"
• Wood Glue
• Wood Screws
• Drill Driver
• Hinges (optional)
What you'll need:
For outdoor fun all summer long, build a bags game.
Cut two 2-by-4 foot panels from a sheet of plywood for the surface of the boards using the Saw-Max fitted with the SM500 Wood and Plastic Wheel.
Cut 2x4's for the board's frame. Measure four 4' lengths of 2x4's to secure along the long edges of your plywood boards. Cut each piece using a Saw-Max and an SM600 Wood and Plastic Flush-Cutting wheel and the 2x4 cutting guide.
Tip: Place the guide near your measurement marks. Leave about an 1/8 inch between the guide and line to accommodate for the kerf of the wheel and its slight offset. Clamp the guide in place. Make your first pass, then flip the board over to complete the cut all the way through the 2x4 on your second pass.
Cut four more pieces of 2x4 to complete the board's frame. Measure the distance between the 4' lengths you secured on the boards in step 3. The distance should be around 21" but measure twice before cutting. Using the Saw-Max and SM600 blade, follow the same 2x4 cutting method as described in step 2. Once cut, secure these planks in place with screws.
Cut a 6" hole in the game board for the bags to be tossed into using the Dremel Trio, a Multi-Purpose Cutting Bit TR563 and a circle-cutting attachment. Mark the pilot hole 9" down from the top, center of the piece of plywood. Use the Trio tool equipped with the TR563 accessory to plunge drill the pilot hole. Next, mount and adjust the guide so the distance between the bit and the guide's pivot point is 3". Set the Guide's pivot pin into the pilot hole. Turn your tool onto full speed and make a plunge cut to begin cutting your circle a full 360 degrees around the pivot point.
Tip: For more tips on how to use your Circle-Cutting Guide refer to your owner's manual. Follow this link to see the guide on Dremel.com:
Cut four 12" lengths for the legs of your boards from 2x4's using the same method as steps 1 and 4.
Tip: Add an additional 2' length of 2x4 on the top of the legs for more support, especially if you want to secure the legs with hinges (as shown on step 8). The finished height of the legs of your boards should be 12" so if you decide to attach an extra 2x4 on top, you will need to cut off about 1-1/2" from the bottom of the legs.
Secure the legs under your board using screws or hinges.
