"I got a ton of bowling pins from an alley and I want to get a table made out of them, do you know how to do that?"
My answer: "Not a clue, but I'll figure it out."
This is a step by step tutorial on how to build a similar table using reclaimed bowling pins - I think it came out fairly nice!
Step 2: Cut your seams into the bowling pins
You will need:
-GOGGLES (trust me - the acrylic shield didn't happen just because it looks cool.)
-A Dremel Multitool
-Pair of pliers
-Some scrap acryclic
-3/8" saw blade attachment for Dremel
I recommend drawing a black line on the seam of the pin to guide you as you work w/ the blade.
I found that working from left to right would burn the plastic, and moving from right to left would gather the melting plastic on the blade. You can then pull the plastic off of the saw blade with pliers or a multitool. Let that plastic build up too long and you will start flinging molten pin plastic all over your work space.
