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!


  • 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

  • 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 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

  • 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...

  • This is one of the coolest videos I have ever seen and boy have I seen some videos

  • Get u a girl who can do both

  • Wow In the whole yt trending list this was the only one I watched volunteer

  • can someone help me out with some subscribers just 1 well help 😁😁😁

  • 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.

  • Like this comment if you think he should make a pool table

  • Love the collaboration! Great project!

  • Can we see more videos using the glowforge laser cutter please?

  • Hi guys How are you? Amazing this project I loved very very nice. Congratulations for you and Bob.

  • Hey, just wondering... this Rhodes piano is for sale?)

  • The table looks great. Awesome video.

  • cool stuff dude! hey have you tried making an electric guitar?

  • WoW This is really Genious....I'm Loving It.Thanks.

  • Fender Rhodes MK1!

  • Rig a 3d printer to play air hockey with you

  • Im new to this channel. You have earned one more subscriber

  • Love how it turned out! The walnut accents go perfectly with the dark leather net. Also, Evan barely fits in your basement. Ha

  • I heard you from the Escape Room with Wes, Moe and Grant.

  • Ok is it just me or do Bob and Evan look alike?

  • That's actually a cool scoring system. Lit.

  • Is that the Diresta's Ice Pick? Can't wait for mine to arrive!

  • Bruh you can sell these for a lot of money

  • #27 on tending :) Great job ILTMS! I can never wait to watch your videos!

  • If you can’t afford to do this just get a table and and a 1 meter ruler or something and just buy the ping pong stuff 😜

  • Very cool, that must of taken awhile to come up with the idea, and the design is cool, be blessed be life enjoy life 😊🤘🤙

  • That girl is useless

  • Nice trending at 22 right now

  • Good tt tables are made with an inch wood. There’s a huge difference in bounce and speed.

  • Very cool

  • Incredible!, I'm a web developer and I love to do things and furniture in wood :D

  • What was the totally end cost?

  • 15:22 LOL the cards for the other videos didn't show up(until 15:30); they looked ridiculous pointing at nothing.

  • Can you please try to build a pool/snooker table

  • The net needs to be a net ... otherwise you drastically alter gameplay for the absolute worst.

    • I Like To Make Stuff oh I don't doubt that!! I'm just saying like there are a couple situations during gameplay where a net makes it more competitive/interesting and I feel like that divider wouldn't physically deliver the same results. Heck yeah it's still fun.

    • And yet, it’s fun.

  • 11:20 connect four!!! 😅

  • could you please make an electric longboard?...... Please?

  • bob can you make an electric longboard

  • Great video and awesome to see that this is "trending"! One tip I would suggest would be when using the biscuit joiner. Since the biscuits are going to swell and alter a little, placing them closer to the bottom of the wood (instead of the top) would make it so the bumps that could come from the cuts, would show on the underside and never be seen. Hoping I'm making sense here...

  • everytime I watch your video I want to hit send my resignation email and live the true life of maker, not an enslaved industrial designer! One day, though! but today, i'll just have to 3d print some toy i'm desiging at home :D

  • That's probably the coolest ping pong table I've ever seen

  • CONGRATS ON THE TRENDING GUYS!🎉 I love both your channels

  • I will try have to try this in the summer! Looks like you r having a lot of fun :)

  • Its like Bob and Bob the giant.... :) :) :)

  • Gee if I had Evan & Katelyn in MY shop...I could build something like that too...LOL!! Just kidding - Great build guys!!!

  • awesome video, as always. love the collaboration! can we get a link to the edge band trimmer you like on thingiverse?

  • Can you also Build a Billiard Table or Pool Table (however you want to call it), please ❓

  • Awesome build! It was a little frustrating watching you glue the legs to the table though, which now makes it super difficult to transport/break down in the future. Screws alone would've been plenty strong. :\

  • Number 22 on trending

  • #clampchamps

  • ping pong and table tennis are different sports btw, you were playing table tennis.

  • Do I spy a MIG-50?

  • Make a pingpong racket ?

  • Bob please do something from Fortnite!! It would be so cool!!

  • There's no part of that I don't love including the possibility of your ping pong table experiencing a seg fault!! Well done!!

  • please make a scar from fortnite that glows gold

  • Really awesome collaboration between the three of you - loved the video and the build!

  • OMG man! This table is sooo badass!!

  • Anybody else notice the Diresta ice pick?
