Folding Board Games
These three games cover all the bases when it comes to simple entertainment for friends and family members of all ages.
Whether you enjoy a classic game of checkers, old-school cribbage, or maybe an exotic romp with mancala, these three games will delight the family with hours of offline entertainment. They’re all great for road trips as well. This is because all the parts to play each game are stored away in between the boards. Designing the games to fold up employed a piece of hardware that’s not used every day. It’s called a barrel hinge and we’ll show you how to install them. That way, when the game is open in playing mode, things keep moving smoothly across the game surface. In addition, an innovative router jig allows you to make recesses to contain all playing pieces within each board.

Similar Woodsmith Plans
We’ve taken a traditional children’s toy and upsized it to create a fun building set that’s sure to spark creativity in young and old alike.
Melodic Tongue Drum
The techniques that go into making this drum are similar to those you’d use for building a small box. The difference with this project is that you get to play with it when you’re done.
The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
