Step by Step Instructions

1 Measure out your timber
2 Cut the timber
3 Sandpaper the ends
4 Paint your dominoes
5 Rule a line down the middle of each domino
6 Paint your lines and dots
  • Step 1. Measure out your timber

    With your tape measure, measure out 220mm on your timber and mark it with a pencil and a ruler. You’ll need to do this 28 times for a full set of dominoes.

  • Step 2. Cut the timber

    Put your timber into the mitre box and with the hacksaw, cut along the lines you’ve marked for your dominoes. Remember when you’re carrying and cutting timber to wear gloves.

  • Step 3. Sandpaper the ends

    Rub sandpaper on the ends of your dominoes to clean them up and make them smooth. 

  • Step 4. Paint your dominoes

    Now it’s time to get creative and paint your dominoes. You can choose any colour you like. We painted ours black.

  • Step 5. Rule a line down the middle of each domino

    After the paint has dried, with a ruler and pencil, find the middle of each domino and make a mark. Then rule a line across the domino.

  • Step 6. Paint your lines and dots

    Paint a white line down each domino where you’ve marked. You also need to paint on your domino dots. Use the attached worksheet for a guide to how many domino dots you need to paint on.
