Shooting Out

Clever woodworking project @, a Jenga pistol! Matthias writes –

The game of Jenga was possibly designed to be a more contemplative and strategic game. But sliding those blocks out carefully without knocking over the stack is just entirely too fiddly a task to perform. I figured it would be much more fun to just be able to shoot the blocks out with some sort of pistol.

    Take a moment to check out Matthias’ whole site. Amazing work, with lots of free woodworking plans.

    This is downright silly.
    I can’t believe a grown up guy could actually take himself seriously after shooting Jenga blocks off the table.

    He is playing with wood and rubberbands for god’s sake!

      Looks like he’s having fun! Why else would you build a trebuchet or soap box car?

      Just goes to show how some people selfishly judge others for interests not their own. Wake up, we’re on a site devoted to ‘making’.
