Pool Table decor

I have been wanting to make this 3D Pool Table for a while and finally had an occasion to do so.  It is for a birthday gift (a guy).  This pool table is pretty realistic and very sturdy.  The SVG cut file is from my favorite site: collection called The Green Room. Finished project size is 7-1/2" x 3-5/8" x 4-1/4". I used papers and scraps I had on hand. And, it doesn't take much paper at all.
Here are the balls: they are popped with foam squares and a white gel pen used on each ball.
Another view: the cue stick is made using Kraft paper and edges are sponged with brown ink. I did move the pool table black dots - I was told they are at opposite ends and not together as in the original cut I know? But this guy plays pool and he will know.
I love the decor panels on the side - I decided to cut two sets for the pool table (instead of one as in the instructions) to decorate the front and back. Note the entire pool table edges have brown ink.
Surprise - the pool table is a box - LOVE it! I did add a liner for the inside.  Inside measurements are 4" x 7" x 2". There's plenty of room to fill this with lots of different treats. 
Hope you enjoyed this posting.  Be sure to check out the SVG collection - always provides a video tutorial for all their projects.  It's a great reference. happy crafty day to you!
