Hey guys,
I salvaged a nice ping pong table top from a busted up base. Its the two piece folding kind. I'd like to make a simple base for it. Probably without the geometrics of making it folding for the sake of brevity, summers almost gone. I have plenty of metal and a welder, unless some other material would be easier. I googled some pics and saw em sitting on sawhorses, figure posting here would probably find me something better.

Anyone ever built/restored a ping pong table? I been on a roll with the rec games lately, loving the new pool table....figured keep the momentum going. It's too hot to crawl under ranger.

I had two folding card tables I used, lol, inherited from grandmother who played lots of bridge

Ping pong table standard height is 30", 2.5ft

Saw horses are about that, then a couple of 2x4s between them

Same here. Then I got one as a grown, played the heck out of it, then I gave it to my buddys kid, so it lived down the street and then came back with only the tops.
I am even thinking maybe just buy one, mock the base, and return it when I am done using it as template.
