Fancy a match? Man spends 10 years building a billiards table out of 1.8million MATCHES

Pictures and article at:

This billiard table constructed entirely out of matches took more than a decade for its ingenious creator to build.

Zdenek Matejka used as many as 1.85 million matches to build the life-size billiard table at his home in Novy Prerov, Moravia, Czech Republic.

The creation is a labour of love, which he spent nights and weekends working on for more than ten years.

The body is made from larger matchsticks, while he constructed the lining using smaller ones.


The only other material that Zdenek used to complete the project was wood glue.
