Hi there…

Its good to be back on Lumberjocks after 6 years of hiatus since my last posting (Sam's Split Top Roubo Workbench).

Anyways, I’d love to share my latest project with you guys and I hope you enjoy it.

p/s a full video on the making of this project and close up pics are available on my facebook page

https://www.facebook.com/sam.marine.16/

Briefly,

– Sam’s Foosball Table —

Designed and handcrafted it myself

Idea generation and conceptualization are inspired by Sam Maloof joinery

Adopted measurements from “Tornado Tournament Foosball Table” and concept of single goalie from “French Bonzini”

Design influences? “Art of Nouveau” – leg curvature sculpting profile & “Art of Deco” – cabinet (body) with sharp angles and geometrical shapes profile

Project consists of 2 genres: woodworking technicality and artistic style (shaping & sculpting)

Materials used are tropical hardwoods and softwoods, brass (solid & hollow) rods, stainless steel hollow rods, custom-sized tempered glass and felt cloth

Couple of years in the making (approximately 6 hrs/day X 365days)

Glad it’s finally done and happy it turned out well

Cheers, Sam MT

I am not sure if this has any bearing on your project but I guess it wasn’t meant to be a race.

I can see that it sure looks like fun
