Table Tennis Bat – These bats can be bought fairly cheaply at the sports shops but it is much more fun to make your own so that you can play this game of all made by yourself.
Get a piece of plywood and mark out the shape as shown in the diagram. This is a 6 in. circle with a shaped handle having an overall length of 9 in. Carefully pencil the shape on the surface of the wood and cut this out with your fret-saw. Make two extra pieces for the handle as illustrated and gun these into position on to each side of the bat.
Sandpaper all over surface and the edges until quite smooth and nice to the touch, being careful to give the edges a good rubbing to smooth them over. A coating of varnish will considerably improve the appearance of your bat.
