My son asked me to build him a foosball table for his graduation from college. Since I have four other children and grandchildren, I decided to make two tables. I found a plan from Furniture Plans.com and obtained the hardware from Thompson Sporting Goods.
The original design came from the plan. Dimensions had to be modified to accommodate the playfield. The table is equipped with Tornado foosball table parts including the Tornado hollow rods and counterweighted men.
The table is constructed of quartersawn white oak using traditional mortise and tenon construction, with the tenons pinned and covered with raised ebony plugs (with their edges gently radiused back to the surrounding wood). Each leg features quartersawn figuring on all four sides, accomplished by assembling the four boards with a locking profile.
