This is the shuffleboard table I built for our students at church. The playing surface is 14 feet long by 20 inches wide and is made from recycled bowling lane. The markings were done with a sharpie and the finish is 2 gallons of epoxy. The table is a torsion box made from 2×8’s and 3/4 inch plywood with 4×4’s for the legs..

Man I love playing shuffle board. That is a great project using salvaged materials. I may have to look for a piece of that to make one.

Very nice job.

That’s Awesome! Well done, my friend.
The recycled bowling lane is a great idea. Can you tell me how thick the bowling lane is? 2” ?
