Red face Magazine question....

Hi all,

I bought a magazine 2 to 3 monthas ago at one of the local "marts" from the Magazine section.

It had several "quick easy" projects in it. One of them was a portable tic-tac-toe game. One row of blocks twisted to expose drilled holes to hold the marbles.

Long story short....after about 2 weeks I think it got mixed in with the Newspaper and was thrown out. I have looked for it several times to rebuy but I can not find it. I must have bought it right before they switched the issues.

Does anyone have any idea what Mag it was. I will buy a back issue from the Company. There were several things that the "boss" and I were wanting me to make.

thanksall

tom

9/2012 (September) issue of Wood Magazine had this project:

They sell the fee plan here for $2.95:

And now you know why you 'never' throw anything away.
Possibly not exactly what you had in mind, and not plans, but should be simple enough to clone. Amazon.com: Zachary Portable Tic-tac-toe Game in Maple Wooden Board and Marble Pieces: Home & Kitchen

I just walked through our dining room and saw one of these on the table. A man at church made about 50 of them for the children, and one for my wife. Strange timing!!

To all that replied.....THANKS.....
To make a long story short, I found the magazine as a pdf file, downloaded it, was looking through the download. The wife (read ) walks into the room and asks " is this the magazine you have been looking for?"
