DYI Project - September Giant Jenga You’ll need: • • • •

2x4 boards (enough for 48 pieces 10 1/2 inches in length) 5 different colors of paint Sand Paper Sealant (Optional)

1. First you need to buy enough 2x4 boards to cut into forty-eight 10 1/2 inch pieces. You can cut the boards yourself or have them cut at your local lumber yard. Try to avoid wood that has large knots or holes in it. 2. Next sand all the edges, so everything is smooth and can slide easily across each other. 3. Last paint the ends in five different colors: Grassy Meadow, Field Poppy, Safe Harbor, Panama Rose and Crumb Cookie. 4. (Optional Step) Apply sealant if desired. If you do decide to seal also keep in mind that some sealers (like polyurethane) can change your paint colors (like tinting your whites more yellow). Although I do plan to keep my jenga set outside plenty, I will probably store them in the garage during the seasons with a lot of moisture to keep them from warping. 5. Have Fun!
