Altoid's Pool Table




About: I love to ski and bike. I also like to make stuff.

I made a mini pool table out of an Altoid's tin. It cost me no money, and is made of materials found in most homes. Enjoy!

Step 1: Materials

You will need:
A sharpie, 3 pieces of felt bigger than the tin, a Altoid's tin, double-sided tape, scissors, around 5 small round beads, 2 paper clips, and that's about it.

Step 2: Trace and Cut Felt

Take your 3 pieces of felt, and trace the outline of your tin on each one. Cut each one out, but the third one cut divots in each corner (see picture. Then put double-sided tape on the bottom of the tin, place a piece of felt, put tape on that felt, place the second piece, then put tape on that piece, and finally put the divoted felt on top of that.

Step 3: Cut and Bend Paper Clips

Cut off about 1 inch of paper clip metal, and bend it into a triangle. Then cut an inch of the other clip, and bend it straight. Now you have a triangle and pool stick.

Step 4: Finishing Touches

Add 3 pieces of double sided tape on the bottom of the top of the tin. This is so you can put your triangle, stick, and balls in a place to keep them from rolling around. Now play pool!
