Default Basement bowling ally build

Do to popular request, here's my son's christmas present build log. It'll be single duck pin / candle pin bowling lane, 42" wide by 16' long + 4' for a pin deck. everything will be done by hand, no machines. (but will have a ball return system of some kind)

for those of you that have no clue what duck pin or candle pin bowling is, here's a pic thanks to a buddy on one of the bowling forums.



SO, shall we start?



here is the basic frame layed out. there will be two of these making up the lane bed it's self. (two sections 8' long) both of witch are made.



one section sitting upright with the bottom section of the frame / gutter supports on.



gutters coming along. the side's have not been installed yet since i left the drill bit i needed at home. more will follow wensday, since i work all day today and tomarrow.

lawl, it's not as hard as you think. the hardest part is tracking down pins. candle pin's are EXTREMLY hard to come by. i found some for 30 bucks each... witch is 300 a set. thankfully since i am a pinsetter mech, i found duck pins for a decent price since the AMF route 66 lanes are really taking off.

Not sure which type of pin they were, but I helped to kill a handful of them the last time I was in Texas. Bowling pins make great shooting targets...

iNdeed they do. i've got a couple of cases stashed around for when i go out "plinking".

most likely they were standard 10 pins, as the other's don't make good targets.


just incase anyone is intersted in building this, here is what i've gone though parts wise.

20 - 2x4x8's (allready used them up, and will need more)
8 - 1x6x8's
3 - 4x8x1/4" OSB

i'll also be using the snap and lock style flooring. this one will need about 65 sqft IIRC.

Out of curiousity - what's total cost on something like this?

It'd be something interesting to do in due time. I wonder how hard to create a machine to pick them up/stack them or buy one, probably too much.

Looking forward to seeing you get this done.
