DIY Garden Toys – Yard Yahtzee From Pallets

How to make a simple set of Yahtzee from recycled pallet timber. Simple woodworking project and involves the propane gas torch which has to be my most fun tool at the moment. I picked up some pallets a while back made from a mixture of 4×4 and 3×3 and have slowly been working my way through them.

Evolution Rage3 mitre saw made quick work of cutting them down, then a quick belt sanding. Onto the pillar drill with some forstener bits which make a fairly decent cut. You could use a hand held drill but make sure its as upright as you can get it and also clamp the blocks in case they snatch.
The little blow torch from ebay is still hanging on in there although bits have started to melt and it gets wicked hot after doing a sign. Finish off with a palm sander and some varnish, im using B&Q own brand quick drying varnish.

Bongo, all that possible luck and no appearance by our star Mr. Butters. Although again a fine exposition it seems lacking without such cat presence. I’m sure this is no fault of your own, that boy was out on his pleasure hunt.
