So this is actually the third foosball table I have built. The second in this style. The case is made from solid rock/hard maple. The legs are also made of rock maple. The field is a butcher block style of walnut affixed to two 3/4” sheets of particle board. This was to get weight and a flat surface for the field. I inlaid the maple field markings with scrap left over from some figured maple I had laying around. I used my Shapeoko CNC to do this and am really happy with the results. I added the walnut trim to the box this time. Last time I used maple (maple on maple) and it just didn’t have the pop I was hoping. The walnut fixed that, and it took me finishing this one to realize it. I bought all the parts for the men, rods, etc online and after measuring 3 times I drilled the holes. Things lined up like they should. This was a fun project, and foosball tables are by far my favorite build. They are way fun, great conversation pieces! The finished product is FAST and HEAVY. I think this thing weighs easily 300 lbs put together. I finished the whole thing with 3 coats of General Finishes Arm-r-seal semi-gloss and am happy with the finish. I just recently began using General Finishes and I am really happy with them so far. I really wanted to

Thanks for looking!

Nice work. CNC or not, the quality of the inlay work on the playing surface is superb.

Amazing build, that looks more like a fine piece of furniture than a game table. Very well done.

Goals… no pun intended. I absolutely love foosball but haven’t played in years.
