How To Build Beer Pong Tables
The rules of beer pong vary, but the one piece of knowledge all players need to know is how to build beer pong tables. Regardless of the rules, the table is the most important piece of equipment. There are a couple different ways to build this essential part of the game.
To build a beer pong table you will need:
- A base; either a piece of plywood or an old door
- Two saw horses
- Paint (optional)
- Waterproof sealer
- Find a base. This can be either a piece of plywood or an old door to use as a base. It should be around 8'x4'.
- Decorate the table top. Paint the table, if desired. When some people build beer pong tables they choose to decorate the table with intricate painted designs. An easy way to decorate when you build a beer pong table is to simply paint the base one color. This can be done with a bucket of paint or a few cans of spray paint.
- Seal the table. It is important to remember when you build a beer pong table that there will be a lot of spilled drinks. This is why it is important to use waterproof sealer. Use this directly on the table if you chose not to decorate it. If you've painted your base, use the sealer after the paint is dry. If you don't use a waterproof sealer when you build a beer pong table the surface will get warped. When this happens, the table will not be flat any longer and will not be able to be used for the game.
- Assembly. After the table is decorated and sealed, the final step in building a beer pong table is assembly. The easiest way to assemble the beer pong table is to just put the base on the two saw horses. This is a good option for those who need a table that can be stored in small places. For people who have room to store their table, the base can be permanently attached to the saw horses with nails or screws for a more stable surface.
Building a beer pong table can be a really simple process with a quick coat of waterproof sealer on a piece of plywood thrown on two saw horses. A beer pong table can be a more involved process by adding an intricate decorating process as well as permanently securing the table top to the saw horses. Regardless of which way you decide to go with, a beer pong table is an absolute necessity for the game.
