Foosball player

I wanted to do with the same size of wood I did skill builder project, but the dimension was to big for the foosball player, so I pick a smaller piece that fit the player size. First I draw the sketch (wine glass) on it and drill the holes to fit in the table.

In the lathe I started shaping the piece with the nose scraper to have a cylinder, making sure not too loose the mark points. Marked the limits and the bending points with the parting tool.

In the test fitting, the holes for the screw were not aligned so I drilled another hole while the piece was in the table.

Seal the wood using 123 primer, and then paint it with acrylic white paint and let it dry.

To decorate the player I use as example this painting by Picasso.

  1. Getting the holes positioned correctly is very important, normally you don’t have the luxury of re-drilling on site. I like the look of your player, great work.
