Beer pong is a sport known to many college kids far and wide. Rules change from region to region, but the love for the game remains the same. I remember the days of my youth when my liver could handle enough beer and liquor to kill a Wildebeest when I would play all the time. My partner and I actually had the perfect football season one fateful night, 16-0, hell yeah. When we had the time on our hands of college kids, we would actually set a table up and just practice one on one against each other for hours. That’s how champions are made. Finding a nice table to play beer pong on though can be a hassle. You don’t want to use a nice kitchen table because they are usually not long enough, and most people don’t want to take the chance of ruining them. Well imgur user kyle28060 had this exact dilemma. So what do you do when want to play beer pong but have no table? You repurpose some wood from pallets you have lying around and use it to create an awesome wood beer pong table.
This is the pile of wood he had to work with. Not in bad shape, perfect for a DIY project such as this.
The first thing he did was to assemble a simple frame. Nothing fancy here as a beer pong table doesn’t need to be fancy, it just needs to function.
He then laid out the boards as they would be when the project was completed to make sure all the measurements worked out as they should.
Now this is where the build gets thrown off track a little bit. The traced out “S” in the center of the table is the symbol for Michigan State University.
He chose a green color to match the logo.
He used the middle boards that flow the opposite way of the rest of the wood on which to paint the green “S”.
He then cut the side boards to length. The whole table looks great so far.
Fold up legs were added for some much-needed convenience. If you have ever transported a beer pong table before, you know that fold up legs are pretty much invaluable.
He might want to clean out his garage instead of adding more stuff to it however.
Finished product, stained and all. It looks pretty rad I must admit. You don’t have to worry much about this thing breaking either.
This is one of the better home-made beer pong tables I have ever come across. The construction is sturdy and won’t break right away like some of the cheap plastic ones you can buy. The guy spent minimal money to create a table he can use for years to come. I would say that is a win in anyone’s book. Oh, and if you have never played beer pong, go do it right now.
