My son has been asking for a foosball table for years. I didn’t really want to buy particle board one and couldn’t afford a nicer one like pottery barn that would look nice in our house, so I build this copy of Pottery barn foosball table for him for Christmas. Made of solid hard maple with mortise and tenon construction for the base and legs. Hand cut dovetails for the box. Quilted maple for the top. Formica on 1/2” plywood for playing field. Ball returns.

I actually bought a table on sale at sears and used the rods and players.

I am totally jealous. Pottery barn needs to come copy your table. They most definitely aren’t selling one this awesome.
