    Steve, I must thank you. This inspired me to make my own version for a school woods project. I used 2.5" x .75" Oak for the sides, cut 3 dados, and have the catch floor, the play floor, and a lid that slides in and out. the front oak side board is cut to be flush with the bottom of the top dado. I also made a small basket that way when your ball comes out it will not hit the floor. All of the floors are oak paneling, and I used walnut for the interior walls. Thank you so much! I would say you earned a sub from this video, but I had subbed already. Love your commercials too, keep it up.

    how would it be if its made to be able to replace the top plate templates, so that we can make more puzzles?

    this needed a small block for the ball so you can keep the ball from falling if you want to store it somewhere, or someplace you can store the ball like a pocket

    What if you made one with six sides and the winning hole went to the next panel

    Great video.  Very nice presentation and loved the end product.  I used to have one when I was a kid and watching this brought back great memories.

    Phew 10 degrees celsius is t-shirt weather over here in the uk 🙂 Thanks for the video, nice project.

  13. Hey Steve,
    Vijay from India… I've been watching your videos for quite a bit now, hours together 🙂 it never gets boring with you and your way of presenting… I really felt compelled to leave you this comment… I currently don't have the setup or the space to involve in woodworking, but watching you make things is really serving as a good stress relief for me… thanks a lot… Kudos…

    You are a genius! Have a very pedagogical and simple way to explain … but I do not understand much English as only I can barely translate my very basic knowledge of the language just a few ideas, projects are considered very well! Just ask a favor! Place Eng subtitles, especially in projects that deal with accessories and tools are fantastic!! please! Hahahahahaha! I send a cordial greeting from Argentina, my name is Gustavo! Thank you very much!

    Cool video, you a great intro, gave specific measurements, shows us exactly where to cut, a visual experience of how to use the tools, a visual experience of how the wood should look like and how to piece the wood together. But you kind of go off topic at certain time's, like talking about the weather, or about your previous video. Even when the labyrinth started to fall apart, you blew it off and continued working. This is a very easy woodwork to make and I am considering making it.

    Not sure of the size, but you could bust open a spray paint can.

    Could you please make another one of these but have the playing surface be round instead of square I want to see if that would work

    It makes me smile when someone says 50 is cold.

    Just so you know: I know how to scale things. The problem is that the ratio between the sides is different. (The A series I'm used to has a ratio of 1:√2 for easy scaling between the different sizes in the series.)

  24. Nillie

    February 7, 2018 at 3:55 am

    The main problem is that the shape of the paper is not the same; had it had the same ratio between the sides, it would be no problem at all.

  25. Nillie

    February 7, 2018 at 3:55 am

    The template is on some sort of wacky US paper format, right? How will it work on A4 paper? (Or any size in the A series, really, if you want to scale it up or down.)

    are you daft?
    1.
    an intricate combination of paths or passages in which it is difficult to find one's way or to reach the exit. Synonyms: maze, network

    When using a table-saw, you should use a respirator with organic filters, UV filtering safety glasses, 100 db ear protection, a certified chest protector for possible kickback, and at bare minimum, you should be wearing chainmail gloves in order to maximize your safety. Something to think about. Also, what tools do I need for this project?

    If you were to do this again I would suggest making the playing surface removable so If your son wanted more different maze(s) you and or your son (father son project???) could make more. I would say magnets but that might effect the ball bearing.

    "its realy cold about 50 degrees"????

  35. Alex Santos

    February 7, 2018 at 3:55 am

    @oriolesfan61 Its more like a labyrinth because there is only one path and can be square. Also a maze has dead ends there are no dead ends here just trap holes.

    This is NOT a labyrinth, it is a MAZE

    Steve, you really should be wearing safety glasses when you operate your table saw (1:20). A lot of people, I'm sure, watch your videos (as I do) and may get the impression it's ok to do what you do, especially your younger viewers. Other than that, and sometimes your off-the-wall humour, your shows are pretty entertaining. Keep up the good work and be safe (but put your glasses on dude).

    Hey Steve, I'm almost done with this project but I can't find a ball bearing anywhere. Do you know of any stores that might sell them?

    Hi Steve, Very nice work!
    We were trying to make it based on your technics, but we have had problems mounting the frame cutted in 45 degrees. I mean, in our case, the pieces of the frame were pulled one against the other one by the screw, so the adjustment was not good enough precise.
    In other words, what are you using for mounting the frame, nails, screws, just glue, or what?
    Thank you very much, and sorry for my english, but If I'm lucky, your game is also gonna be used in Chile!

    I get a kick out of "it's really cold, it's like 50 degrees". How many times did I go into my shop in December and have it be 20 degrees….

    50 degrees you don't even need to heat up your glue!

    Hi Steve,

    I can understand your pain too.
    We must also work here in Corsica, with some heater when the sun disappears more than 2 days !!! 😉

    By the way, Thanks for your vids, it's always a pleasure to watch such instructive projects
