Step 1: Requirements

Picture of Requirements
COMPONENTS
I've tried to make making mallets as easy as possible, with the most common materials. You probably have these materials lying around:

Disc
A piece of plywood which is at least 13cm x 13 cm and is about 2 cm thick.

Handle
A PVC tube with an outer diameter of about 4 cm and a length of about 7 to 8 cm. You can consider the option of using the end of a broomstick, if it has the right diameter. This handle can be a little shorter.

Scratch preventive material
An old piece of circular sandpaper (those with soft backs). You can also use a piece of felt.

TOOLS
-Drill and Hole saw (with an outer diameter of 9.5 and 4 cm)
-Hack saw
-File and some sandpaper
-Close contact glue

Step 3: Attaching PVC handle

C: File the hole in the plywood disc until the PVC tube fits snugly. Push the tube through to the end of the hole. We're not using any glue to keep the handle in place, so make sure the handle can't slip out in any way.

D: Saw the tube to an appropriate length.

E: File all edges of the PVC and plywood to get rid of burrs.

Zonder blazer heeft de tafel(blad) rond de 120 euro gekost. De blazer koste ongeveer 40 euro.
ok was de blaze 2de hands?

I think that Plexiglass would make great air hockey pucks when cut down to proper size.

what about a DIY puck? I guess it would be the same as the handle, but thinner and no PVC, right?

I'm not sure what material is suits this application the best.
