Now THIS is why you should save every little bit of scrap wood you come across. And every rollerball mouse, too, incidentally, as user “seamster” over at Instructables built a homemade pinball table from various bits of wood he had lying around and, as icing on the cake, used an old mouse rollerball as the pinball.
Here’s a video of the table in action:
And as if that wasn’t cool enough, seamster has since added a huge swooping arch and “a ‘Plinko’-style pegged board” made of dowels glued into MDF. Very cool and, remember, no batteries needed.
