Solid cherry table. Same tree that gun cabinet came from.

Wow, that has to be the most ‘bullet proof’ ping pong table I’ve ever seen! That should last a couple of generations easily. Nicely crafted and looks great.

Thanks to both of you for the kind words. Yes Ron, she’s pretty solid. Probably weighs north of 400 lbs. My oldest son is 27 and the youngest is 21. I built it when the oldest was a freshman or sophomore in high school. Both of them went through their teenage years (along with lots of their friends) playing on it and aside from the scuff marks on the top of it from aggressive paddles it still looks and stands just as it did the day I brought it down from the shop. The cool thing about it is that the regulation height of a ping pong table and the standard height of a dining room table are the same. I took two large table cloths and sewed them together. I tightly tape a piece of 4 mil plastic on top of the table (after removing the net) completely covering it up then place the table cloth over the plastic. I can seat 12 people comfortably around the table whenever I have a big crowd for a meal at Thanksgiving or Easter. The plastic keeps the table top (which is made of HDF – and doesn’t like water) from getting wet when a glass of tea gets knocked over, and it usually does. The table cloth gets wet but not the table top.

I wonder what a ping pong table would be like with a slate top…

This is a very sound and attractive ping pong table.
