Video of the (lower half of the) machine in action: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XbzD7iTSWa0&feature=youtu.be Looking to make something fun and usable? Want to impress millions of friends with your craftiness and woodworking skills? PERFECT! A pinball machine is right up your alley. This Christmas my boyfriend decided it would be a great idea for us to make each other's Christmas gifts for each other. It seemed like a great idea until I realized that I'm completely useless when it comes to making usable things! So, my dad and I put our noggins together to come up with this home made pinball machine. This was a trial and error type of process. We were constantly changing things around, but here are the things we settled on. Please comment with any questions or suggestions for improvement!
