Portable Ping Pong Table




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.

Step 7: Enjoy

    One could also use some tape as line for the edges when painting the board and then removing the tape when the paint is almost dry for more neat finish. This will not make this game any easier, seeing how small the board is, but still: nicely done instructable.
