Just a fun project for the new game room in a camp we bought. We picked up a ping pong table for the kids (ok for me really) and I wanted a fun way to store the paddles and keep things organized. I’m building a dart board case as well so decided to match it with another walnut and maple project.

Being a very long time ping pong player I wanted to tell you how much I liked your setup. Very well done and brings back years of great memories playing friends.

That looks like it will last for many years. Congrats and great design and execution.

This is a great project for the Man Cave or rec room. Nice work.

Great looking case, it turned out fantastic. How did you cut the shape in the foam for the paddles?
Also, how did you do the lettering on the front?

Thank you. For the paddles I just laid them over the foam and cut out the patterns with a knife. Pretty straight forward. For the lettering I used my cnc machine and then filled them in with inlace epoxy.

Nice project and well done, not to forget unique too!
I used to play a lot a long time ago …. but now the balls are too small and move too fast!
