Well I got tired of having to pick up Reballs from all over the room so I made a custom shooting box to use.

Materials:

1 x 20 gallon storage tote with lid
3 x large brass grommets
3 x cable ties
1 x canvas bag or 2 layers of equivalent fabric

Tools:

Razor knife
Grommet set
Drill and bit big enough to fit the cable ties
Marking pen (Sharpe works well)
Square


1. Take the bin and put the lid on it.
2. Place the canvas bag on the lid and mark its size on the lid
3. Measure in a few inches on each side of the canvas and use the Square to make the lines straight.
4. Using the razor knife cut the opening in the lid. Go slow and use a few passes to make the cut smooth.
5. Drill three sets of holes in the lid. Evenly space them across the top of the hole in the lid. The sets should be one inch apart vertically.
6. Put the canvas under the lid on a bench and mark the bottom holes on the canvas.
7. Use the grommet set to put the grommets in the fabric.
8. Attach the canvas to the inside of the lid using the cable ties.
9. Put a soft pillow in the bottom of the tote and put the lid back on.

Go shoot your Reballs! Some will bounce out but you can minimize that by also putting a bunched up sheet in the tote.

here are the pics:

Wow thats alot simpler than the one i built , eventually broke and threw away.
I used a blue recyclin gbin on top of a tv stand and put a downspout through tit for the balls to roll out of right into a pod.
