Watch as we create this Wooden Game Maze Puzzle with Steel Ball Bearing in 1-1/2” thick Oak and a 1/8” thick Acrylic using Amana Tool® industrial solid carbide and carbide tipped CNC router bits.

Andy Glass from Glass Impressions takes the following steps to create this custom Maze Puzzle:

Step 1
Amana Tool’s 1-1/4” diameter Mini Spoilboard CNC Solid Carbide Insert Knife Router Bit no. RC-2247 removes 1/8” of the oak to cut the pocket for the acrylic lid.

Step 2
Amana Tool’s 1/4” diameter Solid Carbide Spiral Flute Plunge Router Bit no. 46316 cuts two 3/8” holes for the alignment pins. Then, using a finishing pass, Andy cleans up the sides of the pockets he earlier cut for the acrylic.

Step 3
Amana Tool’s 3/8” diameter Solid Carbide Double Flute Ball Nose Spiral Router Bit no. 46378 creates the channel the ball bearing will fit in. Andy uses three passes in this step.

Step 4
Amana Tool’s 30° Solid Carbide Insert Knife V-Tip no. RCK-360 mounted to In-Groove™ tool body no. RC-1075 engraves the words “Start, Flip and Finish” into the Oak.

Step 5
Andy turns over the oak and repeats the each of the first four steps onto the other side.

Step 6
Amana Tool’s 1/2” diameter Solid Carbide Compression Spiral Router Bit no. 46190 cuts the pockets for the hand hold grips.

Step 7
Amana Tool’s 1/16” diameter Solid Carbide Spiral ‘O’ Flute Router Bit with Mirror Finish no. 51441 drills holes into the acrylic.

Step 8
Amana Tool’s 1/4” diameter Solid Carbide Spiral ‘O’ Flute Router Bit with Mirror Finish no. 51405 makes the profile cuts into the acrylic and creates an extremely smooth edge finish.

Step 9
Andy cuts the tabs loose with a hand saw and sands the edges smooth.

Step 10
Amana Tool’s 1/4” radius Carbide Tipped Corner Round Router Bit no. 49504 rounds the edges of the Maze Puzzle.

Step 11
Using dark walnut danish oil, Andy stains the wood finish, drops in a steel ball bearing then drills the acrylic cover onto the maze for final finish.

  1. Hey there, I'm just now finding your channel. I'm interested in upgrading to my shop to a CANC ROUTER bay as well . You have a good assortment of tool heads if I may ask what was your base cost to include the tool holders, I like the set up ya got there. Thank you for sharing your work. It's quite inspirational.

  2. Hi. I am looking for one of these maze games but with holes in
    Had one once but lost it
    Can anyone help
    Contact me on bsharp999@sky.com

  3. How thick are the walls of the maze. Looks close on 0.25". I'm in the works of making my own & don't want to have the walls too thin or too thick.

    Thanks

  4. Amana RC-2247 at $127? No thanks… I don't know how you justify buying a bit that's more expensive than the router. It's just a bit… the router is infinitely more complex.

  5. Very nice. How long did this project take to make? Could be a nice piece to sell at craft shows. thx

  6. Any way of getting the DXF file on your Maze Puzzle project. I would like to try and cut one out. Good Job!!

  7. Showing the design steps in software and how to create the maze would be an great additive to these videos. It would make the videos complete and I believe would increase your views from start to end. I know it would be of great interest to me personally and I would learn from it. Thanks.
