How To Build A Shuffleboard Table
To build a shuffleboard table we have to be very careful about its parts and making, a little mistake can change the playing of the game. So we have to make it very carefully and with good efforts. The making of shuffleboard table is as follow:-
Decide what size you want to make a table
To make a table at the home firstly we have to decide what length breadth we need for the table to build it. This is the main point by which we can decide how long your table will be. Making a table is easy but the main part is that to take correct dimensions and proper measurements by which one can easily make the right one.
A shuffleboard table, we can make the table range anywhere up to 9 feet to twenty-two feet. Making of the table needs the proper space, so when we are going to make the table keep in mind about the proper space and dimensions that we are going to make. At the end we have a need at least two feet of additional space by that we can easily well play.
Do well planning about each part of the table
Next one is that we have to make proper planning about the table dimensions. we can design our table online easily by that it can save our time also me made fewer mistakes, doing online design can easily make our design and we can clearly see what was lacking in the table. We have to make well dimensions by that we can easily make our table properly.
We have to keep in mind about the dimensions of the table like the width of the box, the height of the legs etc. We have to make every single detail about the table that how long it should be and about the proper space. This will help us to make a good shuffleboard table. Planning is necessary to build the right one.
Decide the materials properly for the table
To make a table we have to choose the right material for that like we have to choose the right type of wood materials. Maple and oak will give us the most durable table, how =ever this material may have more cost but by making this we can get the best table with a smooth surface.
If we can’t afford these woods then we can also use the plywood and bamboo flooring for the surface. This will give us also a good result once it’s became sealed and polished. We also use the shinning material for the shining of the table.
Making the table by joining its parts
Firstly we have to make the box and the legs part. The sides of the boxes should be built strongly so that it can’t break down easily. We can use many types of wood for this but mostly we have to use the solid wood for good performance. The box should be six inches long from each end and should be wide than the surface. Place the wood on the supporting wood for sawing so that the cutting should be placed correctly.
After this join the woods by the screw by drilling holes on the woods. Joining the table is very essential as it can join the table in the rough and tough times. Also, this will prevent the woods from splitting. We have to use the wood screw to fasten them together.
Also, we have added support to the sides. We know that our table is long so to keep safe and prevent from bending we have to support the length of the woods with additional support. We have to make strips inside the box with the proper space given inside. Take one-foot space between each strip by that it can properly build.
After the strips are over, add the plywood to the box so it can easily cover and give good finishing to the table. Use the sheets of the plywood to attach with the above of the strips. Use the wood screws enough to join the plywood with the mending plates. There is no need to drill everywhere or each corner only uses enough screw to join it together.
For nice looking of the table we also lay carpet on the table by this, it can look nice and give a good finishing touch to the table. Cut the carpet according to the table size and staple the carpet from each side of the table or to cover the whole table.
After this cut the legs part of the table correctly, as the leg part is the most essential part of the table by this our table will stand properly. If we have strong leg part then our table will easily stand lifelong. We can make or build the table very correctly as it can be same from each end of the surface to support the surface. After this use the board to support the table legs.
By having a surface we can easily see our table is stable easily or not. Attach the legs parts with drilling the screws into the legs part of the box. After that, screw the board on the box part. After attaching the leg part we can attach the board with the box by drilling the screws inside it.
Making the surface and table
make sure that the surface is smooth enough to play the game easily. Join the surface together so that we can get the smooth and enough good tables to play over it. After all this paint the table with the oil paint so that the stain and dust can’t be get attached easily on this. After this paint or draw the game board over the table so that our table is going to read properly.
To protect the surface and having a good play we have to cover the surface with the polyurethane. It will allow our table to be the last longer and fully attached. Wax the furniture and then buff it with a soft cloth it will give the best shine and smoothness to the table.
