Equipment Needed for Ring Toss

Special Instructions
Clamp down (2) 1x2 boards and put dowel between to saw, this adds stability for sawing.

When the parent is drilling, have them slow down when they near punching through the board. If they keep up a strong pressure the wood will splinter a bit more. Another way to avoid this is to drill through the board with another board underneath. Then the holes won't splinter. A piece of hard particle board makes a nice drilling surface.
