To make a game wheel, gather your materials, drill a hole halfway through the board in one corner, glue a dowel into the hole, paint the board and turntable, add the nails, attach the turntable to the board and fasten a zip tie to the dowel. This process takes about three hours and requires a pre-made turntable, a board slightly larger than the turntable, paint, a small dowel, a zip tie, 1-inch nails, a hammer and heavy-duty glue.
- Attach the dowel
Drill a hole in one corner of the board. The hole should not go all the way through the board. Glue the dowel into the hole.
- Paint the board and turntable
Cover the board and turntable in one color, and allow these to dry completely. Paint lines in a different color across the turntable to divide the wheel into sections. Paint or write the category or prize labels in the sections.
- Add the nails
Put the nails into the board on the painted lines. Place the nails about 1 inch from the outer edge of the wheel.
- Attach the turntable
Glue or screw the turntable to the center of the board. Fasten a zip tie around the dowel to catch the nails in the wheel as it spins.
