How to Build a DIY Tumbling Blocks Game

  1. Measure Length

    Use your BLACK+DECKER 20V MAX* 5-1/2 in. Circular Saw to cut the 2x4” wood into 54 pieces, each 10.5” long.

  2. Sand Your Blocks

    You will need to sand each block 3 times to ensure the blocks are smooth enough to slide easily. Start out by sanding each piece with 80-grit sandpaper, then sand each piece using 120-grit sandpaper, and finally, finish the project by sanding each piece using 220-grit sandpaper.

  3. Stack the Blocks

    The blocks should be laid out 3 wide, and follow a crisscross pattern until you have used up all the blocks.
