dhcf that looks fantastic. I am going back and forth between one with folding legs like that one, and one with more of a furniture look, with a topper for multi purpose use. All fabric racetrack is the way to go for me, but I would like to add an extra layer of wood with a row of nails under the rail. Portable would be good to take outside for cigars and poker by the pool or on the road.
The cupholder question has to do with using the kind that insert in-between the rail and playing surface. I see a lot of positives there in terms of sitting anywhere you want and for more surface area when one or more folks aren't drinking. The only downside to me is that I see more of a chance to knock the drink over because they are freestanding, so I wanted to get more real world experience on them.
I've been lurking on AVS and a couple of poker table forums for a while, never thought to search here until the other day - wouldn't have seen the dinosaur faux leather at YAT without it!
