Sure looks well built. Do you plan on painting it or some other finish? Gotta question too…how is that game played?

Had to google carpet ball just to find out what was going on here, great activity for churches youth, and a
sturdy good looking table also. This made me think of the Pool Song from the Music Man and now I can not
get it out of my head. Thank you for sharing.

How is that game played…I can answer that…at least in my neck of the woods it goes like this:

-1 person at each end.
-each person sets up 5 balls in front of their pit.
-They take turns rolling the cue ball (forcefully & fast) toward the other player’s balls…trying to knock them into the pit. First person to knock the other players’ balls out wins.
