Introduction: Pocket Yard Pool Table
While at the hardware store getting some supplies I noticed this carpet and decided I was going to make a pocket yard pool set (makes it more challenging then a standard pocket pool set) in the altoids can I had left over from my last project. I decided that it should be a classy game with gemstones for balls and brass for the pool stick ball rack. We only used 4 pockets as not much room to play with any more.
As for supplies we used
Carpet sample (free)
7 Gemstones (we used 6mm beads)
Flat copper wire
Step 1: Create the Table
Cut the foam base to raise the pool table up to the correct height. Then trace around the tin and cut the carpet out to fit into the tin as well. After making sure it is a good fit take it back out and cut the pockets for the balls.
Step 2: Create the Rack
Measure the balls and create the rack by bending the flat copper into the correct size triangle this will depend on the size of beads you used.
Step 3: Cut the Pool Que
Then glue the carpet and foam down to make it more solid
after the glue dries test it out and see what you think
