Normally I am the crazy crafter in this house but my husband got this idea to make a stadium for our oldest son's birthday for his Beyblades.  I did a little research to see what people have successfully made them out of and ran across one made out of a small satellite dish. Wouldn't you know we just happened to have one lying around in the shed! My husband did all the work save for me helping with the stenciling! I am so proud of him for putting this together for our son, who freaked out when he saw it!!  The dish itself is 18 inches by 20 inches. It has already had a lot of use in the week our son has had it!

Here it is just after unveiling:

Here it is with two of the Beyblades battling on it:

Hope you enjoy this and maybe even get inspired! It has brought a lot of fun at our house!

This is so cool!

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
I want to make things - I want to get better! I must have patience with myself!

Fantastic!  So much cooler than the plastic arena they actually sell! 
My son would love one of these.  Better not show him!
I think you ought to see if the Beyblade makers will patent it and your hubby could get some royalties
