    SkeeBall

    Found a good thread on another forum on building a skeeball game. I've added it to my list of things to build once the new shop is setup.

    There some sketchup plans on page 4, but not from the original poster. There is a image for the back board dimensions on page 1.

    An electronics manual for anyone venturous enough to build it from schematics, but there may be sites to buy complete kits from:

    My family tends to hang out in the shop, even when we're not working out there, so I do plan to have space for lounging, relaxing, and entertaining. My wife already mentioned she wants several bar stools out there for people to sit on.

    I did see a fold-able concept of the game, which either it or an outdoor version would work as well.

    bar stools meansd beverages and that means something to achieve bragging rights,, so with this new game you got all the bases coverd,, now you need a micro wave to warm up some nachos and a large fridge for the beverages and dont forget the tunes,, i have had almost as much fun in the shop as out of it since it was put up.. ijust feels good to lounge in and swap stories..and no hassel from others

    Looks like a fun project. With a fully equipped shop like that, who needs a house?

    Ha, yeah my wife is fearing she won't hear from me again once I head out to the shop.
