Record and saw holes for footballs

To build the football coffee table yourself, you need one Wooden plate with a thickness of at least 25 mm, The dimensions of the plate in our example have a size of 80 x 80 cm. Of course, the coffee table can also have more realistic proportions of a football field, for example, the dimensions 120 x 60 cm.

On this table you use pencil and plate to draw four circles for the later table legs. So that the footballs fit into it, the diameter should be about 16 cm.

Then you drill a hole for the first cut and then saw off the circles with a jigsaw, Ideally, the circles should be sawn out at a 45 degree angle, so that the footballs later "snaps" optimally into the holes.

Next, paint the panel with white acrylic varnish and let the paint dry. Then use masking tape to draw the lines of the board, such as the frame, centerline, and turrets, to keep them white. In the next step, the green green lawn is applied with acrylic varnish. After drying the paint, remove the masking tape again.

Tip: If you like it more authentic, you can Lay artificial turf, For this, the lawn is cut to the size of the board and glued. Then paint the lines on the lawn and let the paint dry.
