This is a Ping Pong Shooter that I make with my Grade 8 Woodworking class. The kids love the project. The principal and vice principals, not as much… I was trying to come up with a new idea that would get the students fired up. This definitely did the job. Thanks for looking.

Well! From a “LONG PAST Grade 8 Student” and as Kelly said … ” who-who what fun to be had!”

My “Inner Child” is yelling at me to make a couple of these!!

Thanks for Posting!!


PS: Anyone remember when we Old Timers used to build Stilts? I went across the road last year where some 7/8/9 year old Friends were playing Soccer. “Measured” 2 of them. $15 Bucks worth of Spruce 2×4”s from HD.

Next day took them over. ”What are they for” On Boy???? 30 minutes of instruction and using them. “Would you build 3 more pair so we could play ”Stilt Soccer?”.

I did. They did. It was a HOOT watching these Kids play and they were GOOD at it!! Their Parents were out there watching also. THEY thought it was Great!!
