Sometimes the best gifts are those that we make with our own two hands! With that in mind, Bad Dog has been busy making a slick version of the perennial indoor fave Ring Toss.  The best part is that we used scraps and demo boxes from around the Bad Dog Garage. It cost just a lick and a half-hour tops of labor! Sure to entertain both kiddos and adults for hours. Make you own by following the DIY Ring Toss Instructions below.

Bits and Pieces:

  • 12″ x 12″ tile for the base (we used granite)
  • 4 small pieces of tile for the legs
  • about 24” of treaded rod (we used 3/8” diameter)
  • 2 nuts (to match diameter of rod)
  • Construction adhesive
  • 6’ wire cable
  • 3 ferrules
  • Thread lock adhesive (optional)



What to do:

1. With the HDII, cut four pieces of granite from a broken tile to make “legs”. Be sure your legs will raise the base tile above the height of the nut that will eventually hold the rod in place.


2. Using construction adhesive, glue the legs 3/8” in from each of the four corners of the tile.


3. Select a Bad Dog Multi-Purpose Drill Bit that matches the diameter of the rod. Drill a hole in the center of the 12″ x 12″ tile.


4. Screw one nut onto the rod about 1-1/2” up and thread the short end through hole in tile. Install the second nut below the tile base. We used thread lock to ensure a lasting fit.


5. Using our HDII again, we cut wire cable into three pieces. We experimented with different sizes to keep the game interesting!  Make hoops by putting ends through the ferrules and secure with a satisfying slap of a hammer.


6. Have a test play then wrap it up for someone special!


Easy, right? Well, having the right tools makes every job a job well done which is why we aim to make Bad Dog Tools the best tools you can buy
