Neptune’s Gumball Challenge Video

Watch the Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts staff fumble through Bob Gilsdorf’s gumball maze challenge.


The Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts staff does a lot of typing. And a lot of moving copy and photos around with a mouse. And we sometimes even build things. So, we think we have a fair bit of hand-eye coordination. As you can see from the video below, we learned the hard way that when it comes to the skill needed to navigate a gumball through a maze, our coordination isn’t up to Neptune’s Gumball Challenge.


For the pattern and complete instructions to make the Gumball Challenge, see Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts Summer 2017 (Issue 67). It’s available at your local retailer.

If you make the Gumball Challenge, send us photos! Bob might choose your interpretation of the project to share in his upcoming book. E-mail us at, subject #gumballs.
