This Guy’s DIY Backyard Bowling Alley Is Pretty Much The Coolest Thing Ever

When one communities local bowling alley closed down, Imgur user  decided to build their very own backyard version. Here’s what it took from concept, sketch, and construction. Don’t you just love diy and the internet?!

Did you know the earliest version of bowling appeared in Ancient Egypt and the Ancient Roman Empire dating back to 3200 B.C.E.? Balls were actually made using the husks of grains, covered in material such as leather, and bound with string.

Let the outdoor games begin!
