Baseball Card Table

Lack End Table. Glue Gun and Glue Sticks, baseball cards

Description: Purchase of 22″ x 22″ Lack end table.
Picked out 1970′s 80′s Baseball cards of players I remembered.
Used Glue Gun to affix cards to table top.
Used white glue, 3 parts with 1 part water and applied to cards’ faces.
Once dried I used an Epoxy Resin mix to seal the table and have a functional table that would be a great conversation piece at parties.

    I actually love this hack. I’d personally do something like this with comic book pages though, but the baseball cards look neat.

    The cards weren’t off any great value. They were never in plastic sheets and were probably won when we used to flip for them in grade school.

    All I see is a Ryne Sandberg rookie card glued to a table! Ack!

    It isn’t fair that people are beating up on this hack. If other hackers can get away with sticking some nailhead trim on the table or simply painting over a stencil, how is this any less of a hack? I think he did a good job, it’s creative and would go GREAT in a man cave.

      Wow, sorry my hack didn’t impress the Anonymous internet critics.

      Anyway,I like and that’s all that counts. IKEA furniture is crap anyway and any hack is considered an improvement in my book.

      Let’s see your hack A.

      Hello Anonymous
      I am the hacker of this table and while it isn’t the most complicated it did occupy my time. I like it and it was a test to gain experience to make a game table. IKEA stuff isn’t high quality anyway.
      BTW Where’s your hacks? Id like to see them.

    • Steve says:


      I made this hack. I like it and It was my first attempt at a modification of IKEA’s crap furniture.

      Have you ever posted a hack of your own? I’d love to see it.
