Can some one please help me to find some plans for a soccer table. If you don't know what I mean, it's a toy/game and if you have ever watched the TV Show Friends, there is one in Chandler's and Joey's appartment. Anything will be greatly appreciated. Duncan
I don't know where you can find plans, but that game is commonly called fooseball. Maybe someone knows of plans by that name.

Some time ago I was smitten with the table-soccer bug, desiring
to build one. While I couldn't find specific plans for
the "box with legs", I did find a source for the precision
hardware and molded "players" on th web. Search under "Foosball"
and I'm sure you'll find the page I found. The pricing of these components cooled my ardor substantially.
I'm still thinking of a lower cost options for the hardware-i.e.
nylon bearings-steel or brass tubing, etc.
Inspection of a commercial unit will yield the basic measurements u need.

There is a book at Barnes & Noble entitled "Toys". Included in the book is a plan for building a smaller version of what you're considering. They guy uses round dowels for the table rods.
It's not a standard table, but it's a really fun and usable desktop table.
