    Cut a circular recess in the puck. It will catch more air and give the puck lift. Instead of cutting an angle in a piece of wood in the goal so it doesn't bounce out just put a piece of foam to soften the bow so it falls into the goal. Don't use aluminum for the rails where the puck bounces off of because it will be loud and it will dent messing up the rebound the next time the puck hits the same area. People throw out computers all the time. The more fans you can get off the computers the more fans you can install under the table for more air flow. This will nearly cut the sound out altogether. These are some of the ideas I had. I hope they work for you. This will be something I hope to make for my kids (actually me ha ha) in the future. Thanks man and keep up the good work. I love your videos because they are quick, easy to follow without boring dry bits of video. I never have to double tap to "get to the good stuff". May God bless you and your family.

    If u put a ramp on the goal (like a 45 º…) the disc will go down easily. A great Christmas gift… I will take note

    Use about 6 120~140mm PC fans across the bottom at equal spaces to provide air flow. I had one that had one fan in the middle but it had to run at super high speed. Using more fans would distribute the air more evenly and could be run at lower rpm.

    For the air thingy, I have a little air vacuum/blower that was originally meant to blow air into an air mattress. I think that could be good.

    I recommend making different shaped pucks for your kids. When I was a kid we had an air hockey table with a triangle and octagon puck. Some of the pucks had holographic decals. Its pretty trippy.

    why your holes are so big? just kidding I like the project, but instead of an air blower you could use some kind of fan maybe with a brushless DC motor to be more quiet.

    Congratulations but i guess the surface wont last long because of the deep scratches that gonna happen in time . i'd go for a durable metallic surface. Plus only one hole for the air flow doesnt seem balanced.

    Great work Bob. One thing I worry about though is you using your hand on top of the boards at the table saw E.g. 0:50. If the saw whips a board out from under your hand, your hand will drop down on the blade and you could get badly cut. Might be safer for you to use one of those guide sticks carpenters use. Not sure what they're called – I'm no carpenter, nor trying to tell you what to do; just mentioning it so you don't hurt yourself.

    We are two years on+ at this point. Do your kids still play or is the table now too "kiddie" to hold their interest? And given all the things you learned I think it is time for a redo with a 20in box fan from Lowe's. Just sayin…
