This Guy Made A DIY Bowling Alley… How He Did It Is So Clever.

When the only bowling alley in his town closed, this DIY'er could have sat around and complained about the loss of the community institution, but instead, he decided to take matters into his own hands. He turned his backyard into his own private bowling alley -- and you won't believe how he does it.

Using a painstaking preparation process and trying things multiple times until they were exactly right, he created a fully functional bowling lane, complete with "automated" pins and a beautiful wood finish. This is one of those projects that, with some time and patience, anyone could do. See how it was created below, and don't be surprise if you start making plans for one of your own.

The first, and perhaps most important part of creating a project like this is having a good plan in place.

Clearly, it has to be as detailed as possible.

Next up, it was time to put the sketches into CAD to get a more accurate rendering of the project.

And thus began the construction process.

Despite wanting to be as detailed as possible, it really is a simple design.
