Woodworking Plans

Racketeer

My Father built his "Racketeer" game more than 60 years ago. Similar to the British game Skittles & Tops, his version was much larger and had 6 more pins to knock down in the center areas. The smaller size and the density of the woods that I have used actually intensifies the top's actions, speed, and duration of spin. This plan won the 1991 toy contest in Canadian Home Workshop magazine.
There are 3 different pin sizes with accompanying point structures. The top can pass over the shorter mahogany pins, worth 10 points, and will actually travel through the port holes to the other pins. The corner Kingwood pins are worth 25 points, and the "Kingpin" made of Cocobolo, is worth 50 points....and it is possible to knock it down.
There is no skill involved, just luck. The harder you pull the string through the "holster", the longer the top will run....but may, or may not knock down more pins!
This great family game can be made as designed, or with other hardwoods and joinery, and with store bought miniature
bowling pins. The top can also be made with a solid wooden wheel and dowel.
