A D.I.Y. Hookey board is a fun way to put your aim and throwing skills to the test and it’s easy to make too.
Get a Bunnings team member in the timber yard to cut a piece of dressed pine board to make a square shape. At home use the painter’s tape to make a crisscross design on the pine wood. Press the tape down firmly so there’s no air gaps.
Paint the different sections using your favourite colours. Allow the paint to dry.
Remove the painter’s tape to reveal 5 coloured sections.
Mark out the centre of each coloured section with a pen, making sure to space them evenly. Mark out where the eye hooks should go on the top edge of the board.
Then get an adult to pre-drill all the pilot holes at each mark, using a drill bit that suits the size of your square and eye hooks.
On the face of the board, write a number under the pilot holes to show the points you want allocated to each section like, 10,20,30,40 and 50. Hand screw the square and eye hooks into the pilot holes.
