What you will need:
- 1" X 3" piece of wood. I used a 10' long piece for the size of set I was making.
- Belt sander
- acrylic paint
- clear coat spray paint
Cut the wood in to 1.5" size blocks.
Use a belt sander to smooth out all of the sides and to round off the corners and edges. This might take a while. Luckily I had two belt sanders and the help of my Mom and Grandpa :) so it didn't take me too long.
After you sand them on the belt sander, you might want to go over them with a fine sandpaper to make it more smooth.
Paint a black line down the center of each block.
Paint the dots! You can do them all one color or do each number different. I used the end of an acrylic paint brush handle to do my dots so that they were all the same size.
Let them dry completely and you're finished! You can also print off some domino game rules HERE to add in with the set.
How many domino blocks you will need for a set:
You will want to figure this out before you start because I ended up being 2 short and having to do a smaller set.
Use the formula (n+1)(n+2)/2, where n is the number on the highest double in the set.
