How to Make a Set of Baseball Bases

June 3, 2014


My friends and I enjoy playing wiffle ball in the backyard all the time. Unfortunately, the stores only sell rubber bases. All they do is rip and tear after a few times of being stepped on. I decided it was time to get in the shop and build some bases. These are not only extremely simple to make, but they are very sturdy and you don’t have to worry about them ripping. All the bases are made from 3/4″ particle board and are 12″x12″. I made home plate about 15″x15″ and cut a point on one half of the board. I gave all the boards a quick sanding, but I didn’t have time to paint them. I plan on painting them white like real baseball bases and adding a clear coat to make them last as long as possible.
