This is a fun portable ping pong table anyone can make and have fun with!
Step 1: Gather Tools/Resources
You will need these tools: Wood glue, two boards roughly 14 inch long by 5 ½ , two six inch long pieces by 1 ½ , Power Saw, Green paint and white paint, paint brush, 2 Cd's, and 2 Popsicle sticks, hot glue stick, hot glue gun
Step 2: Create Your Table
Get your power saw and cut one of your 6 inch long boards to 5 inch so it will fit the table. Then glue your 14 inch boards to each other with wood glue and let it dry for about 1-3 hours or until completely dry.
Step 3: Glue Your Net
Glue the 6 inch long board and the one that was cut down to 5 inches together as shown with wood glue let it dry overnight.
Step 4: Create the Paddles
Use your 2 Popsicle sticks and glue them to 2 Cd's for the paddles. (Use hot glue)
Step 5: Paint Your Table
Use a paintbrush and green paint (if you want a different color then go for it) and paint the 2 14 inch boards (the table) like shown.
Step 6: Apply the Net and Lines
Put your net across the middle of the table as shown and you can use hot glue or wood glue to glue it down (I used hot glue) and then paint the white lines down the middle of the table (like the picture) and on the outside edges.
