The Baseball Card Collage Table any fan will want

It’s a Saturday and perhaps you’ll like a round of baseball too. Matthew made this baseball card collage table that’s so awesome. Happy weekend and happy hacking.

He says, “I discovered an interesting way to give the LACK side table a baseball make-over using a bunch of vintage baseball cards, glue, gloss, and resin.

The end result is a beautiful table which will add some character to any sports themed room. I’ve found that people love to sit and look at the old cards, even if they’re not into baseball.

And for sports fans, it’s a great conversation piece. The resin coating keeps the cards preserved under a durable, clear finish.”

The original video from Matt is no longer available. But I found a video on epoxy resin application, the technique Matt used.

Here is a similar baseball card collage table made with the same method.

Steve’s version of the baseball card collage table

Materials:

I went out and bought the 22″ x 22″ LACK end table.

Then, picked out 1970’s – 80’s Baseball cards of players I remembered. After sorting through them and organizing the “right” layout on top of the table, it was time to fix them into place.

I used a hot glue to affix the baseball cards to the table top. Remember to wipe clean the table and let it dry first to avoid any other material sticking onto your cards.

Then, I used white glue, 3 parts with 1 part water and applied it to the cards’ faces.

Once dried I used an Epoxy Resin mix to seal the table.

Create a border all around the LACK table to contain the resin.

Let it cure for 24 hours at least and there you have it. A functional table that would be a great conversation piece at parties.
