Handcrafted Ping Pong Paddles – Why Not?!
Handcrafted Ping Pong Paddles – Why Not?!

I’m starting by cutting veneers for each paddle These are cut with ease on my fully restored 1925 bandsaw The veneers are cut to a thickness of 3/32″ I’m using my wide belt sander to smooth the veneers and remove the saw marks from the bandsaw You can also use a hand plane or cabinet scraper to do this I use 3/16″ plywood for the paddle core This is a two part veneer glue made by Unibond 800 The tape helps hold the layers together so they don’t move during clamping The paper is used to prevent the two paddles from being glued together I made this template from 3/16″ plywood I use my spokeshave to clean up the edges Now I’m cutting out blanks for the handles, I’ve picked a walnut burl for this material The bandsaw marks are removed using my low angle jack plane This plane works exceptionally well on figured grain I cut the blanks to length(not shown) and then glue them on the paddles Here I’m trimming the handles to final length The handles get shaped using a rasp This is a card scraper which I use to remove any tearout or tool marks from the rasp Finally I sand the handles with the following grits 180, 220, 320, 0000 steel wool This one is Texas pecan And this one is mesquite Thanks for watching!

    I have been playing table tennis for 17 years now, if you just add some carbon fibers and different wood composite I might be able to use your blade professionally:D

  40. Kurgosh1 says:

    Do you change blades on that bandsaw for resawing vs. cutting relatively tight curves?

  41. Green-eyes Sings Soul Oh yeah baby! says:

    Nice shop. What a great place to relax. A few questions. What are the woods used to make the blade and the glue mix you use to laminate them together. On the handle it seems you used a simple wood glue instead. A beautiful product. Thanks for sharing.

    Video: Hand made table tennis racket.

    My mind: this racket definitely cannot be used in public competitions.

  71. Lemonadetv says:

    And he uses some bad wood and he forgot to add carbon between the wood.

  72. alejandro diaz says:

    Vamos Ginóbili!

  73. lil fluffy says:

    No carbon?!!

  74. Frere Campbell says:

    Thanks for a wonderful carpentry project. You are close, but NO cigar. That last brown wash should be a Tack Cloth instead, to remove sawdust, and then glue on "one each of red and black real rubbers from the Table Tennis Store, with their specialized Water Based glue, and a self-sticking end grain tape, to go around the curved sides, to prevent absorption of moisture. Then you would have made for yourself a genuine pair of paddles.

  75. Peter Friedl says:

    Hm, such a professional Workshop and no router available ?

  76. Joshua Ending says:

    Well we're is carbon?

  80. M Hyun says:

    I play table tennis and it is probably worse than my Boll Alc blade by a long shot. The wood is bad and there is not even carbon to support it. Bad video.

  81. Le Potato says:
