Today I wanted to show you a fun little tic-tac-toe game that I made out of scrap wood and marbles.

This is a great project for all skill levels, and it’s a perfect way to add a personal touch to your next game night.

To make your own game, you’ll need a block of scrap wood, a saw, a drill press with a round nosed bit, and some marbles.

First, mark and drill nine holes into the wood to create the tic-tac-toe grid.

Next to store the marbles you’re going to want to drill 2 holes deep enough to fit your marbles. In my case I used a bit that was a bit larger than 1/2″.

To hide the marble holes I added an accent of maple to the edge using one side as a sort of lid.

By using 2 magnets recessed into the side it conceals the holes and blends in while in use.

Done, you’re ready to play!

This is a great game for kids and adults alike, and it’s a wonderful way to spend some quality time together. So next time you’re looking for a fun and easy DIY project, why not give this tic-tac-toe game a try?

Thanks for watching!

Success! You're on the list.
