after playing a little bit of ping pong i decided "what if i made a ping pong paddle?" and well i did.
and unlike my other instructable i made this while i was doing it. my other instructable i made before hand causing it to be a little bit hard to explain BUT ANYWAY.
have u ever wanted to make a ping pong paddle? well now you will find out how to.
Step 1: What You Need
3.ping pong paddle (to work off of)
5.a long slab of wood (any can do fine as long as its wide and pretty thick)
6. (not pictured) jigsaw
7. sand paper
Step 2: Getting the Shape of the Paddle
and now with your pencil make a square around the paddle (as shown in the second picture)
this is to make it so you have room to cut it.
Step 3: Cut Out the Square
and to do this all you have to do is attach the slab of wood to the table and hold it down with the clamps.
Step 4: Trace the Paddle
Step 5: Cutting Out the Paddle
although i was not so lucky and i have not used the jigsaw before so my paddle is uneven and is a little bit curved. but o well!
Step 6: Finishing Touches
as you can see the paddle handle is curved. that was a mess up with the jigsaw but it was for the better because it is a good handle!
Step 7: Extra Finishing Touches
thanks for veiwing my instructable and i hope this helped and you are now using your custom ping pong paddle! cause i am!
and also I did not add paint to mine because i like it the way it is.
