Beautiful handcrafted wood fishing game with wood pole and wood fish. Free DIY plans by Ana-white.com
1 piece of 1/4" plywood 24" x 24" (or scraps see cut list) 1 - 1x3 @ 8 feet long 40" long dowel, 3/4" diameter rope recommend 1/2" plywood for the fish cutouts 1/2" screws with washers for the fish magnets 2 magnets for the poles
2 - 1x3 @ 20" 2 - 1x3 @ 9" 2 - 1/4" plywood @ 21-1/2" x 9"
Attach the 1x3 boards together at corners to create the box. Then attach 1/4" plywood to the bottom of the box with 3/4" nails or staples and glue.
Use the 3/4" nails or staples and wood glue to attach 1/4" plywood to the 1x2s. TIP: Apply glue to the 1x2s and set in position with 7/8" in on all outside edges. Let the glue dry. Then flip over and add the 3/4" nails or staples to further secure.
For the fish, this free template was used. Use a jigsaw to cut the fish out of 1/2" plywood. Clamp the plywood to a stable worksurface, and cut where jigsaw blade can move freely below the plywood. You may need to re-position wood to cut the entire shape out.
Fishing poles - cut the 3/4" dowels to 20" in length. Drill a hole in the end and attach rope. If you are concerned about the weight of the magnet, you can also place the magnets on the fish, and use a smaller magnet on the end of the pole.
