By the way, HI TUMBLR, I’M BACK.
Bocce is one of my favorite lawn games and has been played at nearly every family gathering for most of my life. I decided I wanted to make a scoreboard to be used for all of our games from now on.
I wanted to make it portable so I could take it to my grandfathers house or friends’ houses or wherever we want to play, but I also wanted to make it large enough to have a particular presence wherever it goes. I put piano hinges on four 2’x4’ pieces of plywood (measuring 4’x8’ altogether) so I can fold it up to fit nicely in the trunk of my car if I want to take it on the road.
I painted it with chalkboard paint for easy scoring and cleanup, and painted scoring lines for games up to either 9, 11, or 15, as well as an area to mark the location and date of each game.
This took me, all in all, about 1 week from start to finish. This was an oddly fun project that I’m hoping to be well worth the time and effort I put into it. Now that it’s finished, I’m now enjoying a mighty sense of accomplishment. Now I’m just excited to play!
