Backyard dominoes can be fun for the whole family. This project can be made for less than $100 and rates as a 2 on my DIYer skill level (with 10 being the hardest).
What you will need:
Seven 8-foot lengths of 5/4 decking wood.
One quart of (dark walnut colored) MinWax stain/sealer.
One pint of white Rust-Oleum (white) paint.
One quart clear sealer.
How to make your dominoes:
1- Cut the decking wood into 28, 11-inch pieces.
2- Sand all edges smooth.
3- Apply two coats of stain to both sides and edges.
5- Apply two coats of clear sealer.
To build a storage bin for your dominoes, you will need an additional two, 8-foot lengths of 5/4 decking wood.
1- Cut three pieces of 42-inch lengths of decking wood.
2- Cut two pieces of 10-inch lengths of decking wood.
3- Nail two of the 42-inch pieces for the sides to the 10-inch pieces (as shown in the photo).
4- Nail the bottom piece in. You will have space, center it to allow for drainage (if left outside).
5- Stain and clearcoat (as you did with the dominoes).
Now you’re ready to have fun!
