Moss has an awesome one.

I helped a friend build and paint a wooden table with a Notre Dame theme to it.

I just have a basic plastic fold up one from spencers I got cheap. I bring it to partys so I needed a light one.

Wow dude, Moss has a pretty legit table setup there. icon_eek.gif

I on the other hand, go for a much simpler beer pong table. My door.

Its very hard to bounce off of most doors lol.
But I'm suprised to see no one has made any tables glow?!



I also thought this one might be someone here:

That running water idea instead of a water cup is pretty pimp.

My first table I built. Bought a set of folding table legs @ Home Depot, cut out holes for tupperware water cups that fit nicely. Put a drip rail around the edge of the whole table. Custom decals, quality enamel paint. By far the greatest table I ever built. I had a Blaze kit underneath and multi-color LEDs in the water cups.

Lasted about 1.5 years and did alot of traveling. It has been retired and chopped up.

I then bought a Pong-A-Long table, it's awesome, folds up, very portable, holds up well, don't leave it in a moist place it will get a little funky. With some 409 I got the funky build up off it. (I left it in a wet garage for 2 months). I have the 8' foot version. Not really easy to bounce on but it can be done.



There are dozens of companies making these now with custom graphic and what not. I have had this one for almost two years and is still in great shape.

If you are going to build one. Spend money on a decent sheet of plywood, get some hardwood for side supports the table will warp without them. Get some decent paint, take your time.

My other table will be finished soon I have all the supplies, just waiting for it to warm up some more so I can pour the two part epoxy. I've been lazy and have collected 1000s more caps for a new table or another cap project.

I have a pretty nice table. 8x4 sheet of hardwood 3/4 inch thick for like $40 and then three 4x4 post cut for six legs. My lines are nothing but black tape. It was cheap and really strong. I think some people have sleept on it.

I also built one with my buddy. It's 2 pieces of 2x4 hardwood sheeting. 3/4 inch thick. We put cheap hinges on the bottom side to fold it in half. Works great for taking from party to party.

Follow-up question..

If I were to make it fold in half, what type of hinges would you use?
We have tried this before and it was not very successful.

I don't know **** about building Beer Pong tables,but I would think that a continuous/piano hinge would work. icon_smile.gif

The only problem with folding in half is the the fact that you have to get a high end piece of plywood, because plywood does not take screws well if it's cheap it will eventually come loose. I have put pieces of poplar and glue and screwed to the end of the plywood then attached the hinge to that. Much stronger.

it you had to make a frame out of 2x4s and use 2 door hinges in the center but it will not be that light

For plywood...

Should solve the tearing out problem without the added thickness.

Thanks for all the responses.

I'll probably just go with the regular 2x8 design but folding would be awesome for traveling from party to party

The folding Pong A Long is where it's at dude. It makes you look like a properly pimped party animal.

15 bucks more gets you the blacked out one....
