For VBS 2016, my wife decided she wanted a new / bigger wheel game. Bigger is always better, right?

So I made a bigger one. It is currently August 2017 and I made this about a year and a half ago, so I don’t have a great memory of the design aspects of this build. But I did take some pics. So I’ll post those and If I can think of any notes, I’ll throw them in…

We didn’t want words on this one. We made 4 other games. Each day a kid would spin the wheel to see which color it landed on . That decided the game we would play for the day…

I ordered the Lazy Susan part from Amazon: Lazy Susan


Split the 4X4 sheet of plywood into sections. First this allows me to find the center point, but it also will give me my painting lines later on.


Then I want to draw the circle. IMG_1345IMG_1346


test fit before cutting out the wood.



Use the same method as drawing the line, but this time with a Jigsaw… Here’s a link to a better jig saw: Jig Saw

I really dislike the jig saw I have. I’m planning to upgrade soon.


added the bolts just to see what I was working with. I liked it.


Removed the bolts and started painting. Not hard. Just tape off the sections you aren’t painting and use spray paint. The painting part is easy. the taping part is the pain in the butt..
