  • Two long sides: L 90”, W 2”, H 3”
  • Two short sides L 46”, W 2”, H 3”
  • Two long sides; L 87”, W 1”, H 2”
  • Two short sides; L 43”, W 1”, H 2”
  • A white marker board with L 87”, W 43”, H 0.5” for a smooth surface
  • Scrap wood with H 2”
  • Pine board with L 87” W 43” H 2”
  • Leaf blower
  • 4ft long tube with a 3” diameter. This measurement depends on the size of the leaf blowers’ outlet
  • An 8” by 8” PVC sheet with a hole for the tube
  • PVC muff
  • Two 8” by 8” plywood pieces
  • Wooden beams of L 13”
  • Two 13” by 13” fabric pieces (get strong ones)
  • Tools
  • Jigsaw
  • Wood glue
  • Wood screws
  • Nails
  • Hot glue gun
  • Tape Measure
  • Drill with 1mm drill bits.
  • Duct tape

Build Your Table

Frame

The beams should have 45-degree edges to fit together perfectly – this is best left to a professional. If you have a white marker board, position it on level ground and then align the smaller beams against it to ensure they are the correct size.

Connect the smaller beams to the larger beams. Glue all four sides together and allow them to dry. Drill pilot holes in the corners and then screw in some screws.

Drill Holes

On the marker board, create a 1" grid. Drill holes for air circulation at each intersection.

Attach Pillars

Arrange your scraps 2" from the board's edge, leaving a 3" space between each one. Using regular wood glue, adhere the scraps to the board and then place the pine board on top to keep the scraps upright while the glue hardens.

Attach The Surface

Tape the holes closest to the whiteboard's margins to prevent them from being blocked by the glue (do this on the reverse side). Apply glue to the edges and slide the pillars downward. Nail five nails into the board's short side and ten nails into the board's long side to secure it to the smaller frame.

Make Your Inlet

Hot glue the muff to the tube and then duct tape the tube to the leaf blower's outlet to make it detachable. Drill holes in both pieces of plywood, ensuring that the holes are larger than the holes in the PVC sheet. Drill a hole through the pine board large enough to accommodate your air inlet.

Drill two holes in the plywood, one with four and one with eight drill bits.Carry out the same procedure with your PVC sheet.

Glue and screw the one with four holes onto the pine board. Place the PVC sheet and the piece with the eight holes on top of the first one, ensuring that the holes are aligned before screwing them down.

Attach The Pine Board

Remove the tape from the whiteboard and sweep the area clean. Apply wood glue to each pillar and the frame's margins, then slide your board into place gently. Place something heavy on it and allow it to dry.

Make The Goals

Drill holes 12 cm from the center of your framework and then use a jigsaw to level it with the playing surface. Then, using the strong fabric between the 13" beams, nail them over and under the cut to create the puck catcher.

Conclusion

If you followed the instructions precisely, you should now have a homemade air hockey table top. You can line the framework with aluminum or plastic bounce-off strips to replicate the rebound effect found on store-bought tables and customize your table design.

Please keep in mind that the measurements may not be accurate for you. Therefore, feel free to adapt them to your specific needs and materials.
