Intro: Makedo Cardboard Foosball Table
You and your friends will be kicking goals with this fully functional Foosball Table.
It’s a quick and easy project, and there’ll be hours of play once the making is done.
We’ve used a fruit box, some cardboard tubes, stiff card and Makedo parts available from mymakedo.com
Step 1: Saw
To create the rods for your Cardboard Foosball Table, use the Makedo Safe-saw and cut 2 slits on each end of your paper tube leaving enough space for your hand to hold on to. Ensure that the slit is cut only half way through the tube.
Step 2: Flatten
Flatten the centre part of the paper tube. This is where the players will connect to. Repeat this step with the remaining 4 paper tubes.
Step 3: Saw
On the sides of your fruit box, use the Makedo Safe-saw and cut out 4 evenly spaced circles that are slightly bigger than the diameter of your paper tubes.
Step 4: Build
Slide the paper tubes through the holes.
Step 5: Draw
To create the players for your teams, cut out 6 rectangle sheets of cardboard. each team will have 3 players each. Draw your characters in different colours on the card or simply colour code the cards to distinguish the two teams.
Step 6: Connect
Connect the players to the rods by punching a hole using the point end of the Makedo Safe-saw and connecting with Re-clips.
Step 7: Complete
To complete your Cardboard Foosball, use the Makedo Safe-saw to cut a rectangle goal at each end of your fruitbox. You are now ready to play. Why not create a score board too! Remember to share your creation at mymakedo.com.
