I built this carpetball table for the Sawdust Chronicles 60 day build challenge. It’s for a local church’s teen room where they get over 190 kids every weekend. They needed another activity to keep them busy. So, it had to be built with the users in mind. That means nearly indestructible! I made all the joints in the table mortise and tenon. This was my first attempt at this type of joinery and it went pretty well. I put a chamfer on every exposed edge of the table and sanded the heck out of this thing. At 12’ long, it weighs a ton and is very stable on the heavy duty locking casters. The table has 2 coats of primer and 4 coats of red paint to match the Church’s existing decor. Some glue on the carpet and a few staples and she’s done. The kids love it and I couldn’t have been happier to help out.
Thanks for looking.
