This project was a collaboration with Evan & Katelyn, they are super fun US-tvrs who came and hung out for the week. We made a really awesome, custom ping pong table with hidden storage and an electronic scoring system! MUSIC:


  • Can confirm, Bob is Clamp Champ in real life too 😋 Had so much fun tackling our projects together, thanks for an awesome week of building (w/ a hint of video games for good measure)

    • EvanAndKatelyn ii

    • EvanAndKatelyn a tip for future projects with edge tape. Don't use a knife as it will try to follow the grain of the veneer. Instead use the blabe of a hand plane, using the face of the board as a guide run the blade angled towards the edge to give yourself a clean straight cut.

    • Douglas Eberhardt we'd love to!

    • EvanAndKatelyn this is so cool. You should do more projects together

  • Evan looks like your twin

  • This is amazing!

  • That box would make a great snooker/air hockey table.


  • BOB and EVAN could be brothers! They look a lot alike! :D

  • I'd love to learn how to make a pool table

  • Make a pool table now

  • W8 a sec, this isn't Evan Kale...

  • 🙂

  • I wish I could have that thing beacause I love table tennis

  • Beautiful

  • I need it in my life

  • I mean the leather net is really cool and all but, you can accomplish the same function and look with some colored duct tape.

  • Great table

  • you could make a pool table too!!

  • Best ping pong table in the universe. Awesome.

  • do you have a link for the trimmer you found on thingiverse?

  • you should make a skeeball game!!

  • I think you do sponsor advertisement better than anyone. It’s not even a bother because you can still see what’s going on but your point gets across and it has people wondering about square space!

  • Hey im Bob, and I like to make stuff.

  • Bob: Hey i'm bob and i like to make stuff😊 Me: Hi i'm azrael and i like to watch you make stuff because i'm broke as f***

  • Coolio

  • Gordon Freeman??? OwO

  • You really like your pocket holes, don't you?

    • I like to get projects finished. I’ll use whatever works best to get to my final goal which is a combination of the project and efficiency of video production.

  • I only disliked because I wanted the 200th one I actually love the vid

  • You should make it so that if both buttons are pressed for 3-5 seconds, the score resets to start a new game.

  • You guy and girls should do a pool table

  • Pocket holes....

  • Wow looks like a lot of work

  • New subby here and binge watching for a few hours now!😂 Love your videos - great work! 😍

  • Can I buy this?

  • Wow, such a dope project.

  • Twins

  • You are pro team

  • Why does Evan and the I like to make stuff guy look so much like each other?

  • the leds are off center :((

  • 5:08

  • Is the code for this project available somewhere?

  • Any table tennis players here

  • Hahaha... hardluck those who keeps years of spite. Oh well, time flies... table is just a table.😂😂😂

  • Hi Bob, I really think that you should try to make a guitar🎸🎸😉 PS. Good job with you videos I like em'😉

  • Hello! where can I found the code? I just got an arduino. Thanks!

  • Nice use of a DiResta ice pick.

  • How to make a Poker Table


  • Nice work. How did you power up these LEDs? (Which transformator did you use?)

  • You should edit the programming so holding down the button for a second takes away a point.

  • Great project. I look forward to watching how they made the net as well. And.... I didn't check all the other comments... But in some of the shots you and Evan look like you could be brothers. LOL

  • Hey Bob, great project again. I have a suggestion to further implement this. Having a buzzer connected to the arduino would be a cool option. You could program those buttons to play like an 8-bit sound when pressed. Such as mario sounds. It's a small touch but it is definitely entertaining.

  • I rember the Secret door it was the first video i have seen from you I searching for a Secret bookshelf door so.. I gues you can find Anyting on the Weirdest ways

  • Saw that clamp trick on Izzy Swan's videos. Not attempting to say you stole it, just giving a shout out to another great maker.

  • You look so tiny next to Evan

  • Wow, they actually read comments!

  • what's a carpenter's favorite snack? a biscuit hahaha

  • Ping pong paddle project???


  • You made an excellent table! I need to think about a spacious room for this.

  • this is very much good for my understanding of how things work i guess

  • Can i eat the biscuit?

  • Plans?

  • My life. I've been waiting for this collab for so long.

  • 9:03 Is his middle finger cut?

  • SawStop crew represent

  • I notice you use Arduino, have you used Raspberry PI ever? Just wondering if there was a reason you choose Arduino.

    • I have several times. A pi would be overkill for a project like this

  • I love how the end result looked, y'all are amazing. Now Bob, I challenge you to try and speedrun Mario.

  • You really like storage space!!

    • I do! If you don't take advantage of it, you just miss out on useable space! :)

  • Now thats what I call a Ping Pong table. Good job all around Bob, Evan and Katelyn. Thank you for sharing. All the best from London UK.

  • Make a drone !!!! With min. 100kmph speed

  • I have watched a lot of your videos and i thought it would be fun for us kids to see you in disney channel. Just like the "art attack dude!"

  • You a little bit look like tony stark... soo... how about you make some stuffs from iron man since (maybe) iron man will die on Infinity War (I hope not) and also do it as a tribute to the Infinity War movie😉

  • Love the build, great project. . . And I love the Vintage Star Wars Rebel Transport toy that you put in the table!!!

  • i will pay $5000 for it.

  • Hi Bob, I am organizing a basketball tournament this year and I need to make manual scoreboard. New ones are pretty expensive here in Croatia, about 60 USD and I need two of them. Because my friend and I are teenagers, we can't afford that along with other tournament expenses so I would really appreciate if you could make a scoreboard project. I have few ideas, but not real experience in DIY so it would be a great help Thanks for great videos, I enjoyed watching every single one. Greetings from Split 👋🏻

  • I Like To Make Stuff ... Hi Bob, I don't have any experience with laser cutters, but I was just wondering something.... when you were trying to cut through 2 layers of leather and it wasn't cutting all the way through and it wasn't burning either, could you have just hit "print" (what button is it on a laser cutter?) a second time and cut through the remaining peice without burning the leather to a crisp?

  • i just have a dumb question that i noticed in the first 2 minutes of the video. Bob why don't you have a miter saw that slides? i feel this would be very beneficial for all the awesome projects you do. i bet you've heard this question a lot. but i'm still going to ask haha. keep up the GREAT content tho its pretty cool. also for the future... could we see more 3d printer based episodes? :D

    • No particular reason, I just found a good deal on this one so I picked it up. The slide would definitely be a nice feature but also makes the saw a bit deeper too.

  • Wow! Nice work.

  • Hey im fedor and i would like you to see YOU make a drillpress with a rouder bit so you kan get wood under it much succes if you try it nice channel i cant stop watching because you ( the clamp champ ) clampt me to you vids 👍😀

  • In the end it looks like 2 vs Katelyn, haha!

  • Ahh, the secret door. The video I found your channel with.

  • You got the ping pong table and raised the level! Now this is the ultimate ping pong table for me! Congratulations Bob, Evan and Katelyn!

  • Hey bob u want me to help you have someone have ideas for u? Pm me and i can make u something(not blackmailing or something)

  • If your on a budget get plastic wrap and tape tape the plastic wrap to two chairs and get two ping pong paddles boom easy DIY ping pong table

  • That's a pretty sick Ping Pong table1 - Cay

  • You should really make more Nintendo Switch stuff

  • Still the only youtuber I watch with the perfect incorporation of ads in your videos. Cool project, Bob!

  • Great video, love the table and storage. BUT, let's talk about that Rhodes 88...

  • Love seeing this collaboration project between you all. I enjoy both of your channels. Great project Bob! Do you happen to have a link to the edge trimmer on Thingiverse you mentioned? I use a knife as well but would love to print a tool if it would make the job easier. Thanks.
