DIY Lifesize Jenga

I know we are in full winter mode- but a girl can dream right? Hahah! I am ready to tackle some projects to help with my sister in law's wedding and also just have some fun next time we have a BBQ or go camping. Life-size Jenga. Yep- bring it on!! I have always loved jenga- it's one of those games you don't have to re-teach yourself every time you play, it's kid friendly, and heck if you play with my mother in law it becomes a drinking jenga game. But that's for another post- hahah. This was such an easy project too- gotta love when you can bust it out in one afternoon!
To make it you will need eight 24's to get 72 pieces, each one being 10 1/2 inches. With each piece being 10 1/2 in. long you are able to get 9 pieces per 24.
Measure and cut! (again and again and again and again...)
Yep going a little crazy!
Just when you want to celebrate being done- it's time to sand, yep all 72 pieces!
But now I am ready for countless hours of fun! I am excited for the weather to get warmer and be able to bust out my jenga- also to use this game at my sister in law's wedding this coming August!!
Happy playing!

Zest it Up

    We have cut four rows and can remove the ends pieces with one hand but when we try a center board all of the ones above move.Do we need to do anything more than sanding the pieces?

    How many inches when cutting? 12?

    Lab or Rotti? Beautiful dog.

    I can just see that sturdy tail of the dog knocking it all over. How did they get the picture of him with his paw on it? Good timing? Did it fall a second later?
