I've built three tables so far, all of them full felt with folding legs. One of them has cupholders. You can see some pictures of them and the construction here. http://www.threekingsproduction.com/...blephotos.html



I think it had been posted a while back but scottkeen.com/forum is an excellent resource, and yourautotrim.com as well to get supplies. I recommend using a joann fabric store, one of there 50% off coupons, to buy the rail vinyl. Whisper vinyl is my favorite to use.

If you have cupholder questions I'll answer what I can about the my build.

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!

thanks,
jp

I've had a four light version hung about 32" or so over my table for years. It's really a great way to light the table as it keeps the direct bulb light out of the players eyes while sitting normally. Looks sharp too. I first came across this setup while playing at the Peppermill Casino in Reno, and knew I wanted it at home. Mine is with green colored shades.

See ya. Dave

You can always have it both ways like I did. Furniture legs but the ability to fold up.

Hey that's pretty cool. I might modify mine someday based on that design.

Mine came out like this:

Looks great jp. Basically I was looking for something to up the WAF. Just added 4 of those big glide pads under the feet and I can slide it out of the way very easily.

Mine is 99% done. One piece of trim to add around the edge yet, but is is usable now:

I figured I post up pics of mine. Im getting ready to start on my third in a few weeks. Not sure if Im going to d a race track or not. I know its going to have a chip holder tray on it. I need some sort of storage for all the chips
Table #1 Had this airbrushed instead of custom dying. Saved about 400 and its still in great shape.

Table number 2. this one was build out of what amounts to scraps. I love it though. great cash game table. 67 inches across

So to add to a really old thread, but one that's still relevant to me at least given I just built my first table.

I love how far behind the trend I am wink.gif

Great tables here and If I played more, I'd do something different. Next table is probably a round one.
