Well since the Theater is pretty much done...and I have a Graduation coming up, my daughter is graduating, brings a tear to my eye
So Me Bride told my when we built the house the bar needs to be complete for Brooks graduation....well game on I have 4 weeks, we have been here 4 years this June
I have the bar stuff ordered and in the mean time I have started building a poker table. So I thought I would share the table build then the bar build as well here. I am pretty far along on the table and should be complete early next week.
I decided for my own table I wanted an octagon, not real popular but I think these look pretty classy and my games are rarely over 8 people. I also wanted a gaming table that was nice to play Uchre and other card games which a Pro hold em table doesn't fit real well.
So lets get on with it
The table is 58" so I special ordered some 5x5 ply wood, only takes 2 days to get from a local lumber yard. Barely fits in the back of the truck :shock:
First I cut a 4x8 sheet down to a managable piece with the track saw, the other half I will use as the sub base
Then cut strips out of some 3/4 ply and mitered them on the table saw
then pulled up a stool and drilled a bunch of pocket holes on one side of the miter
Once complete it was quit work to glue and screw and fit perfectly
Once all three "rings" were complete I simply screwed and glued all together, rounded over the edges and the raw rail was complete
Next I used the rail as a template and traced around and broke out the track saw again and cut out the base
I left the line on these cuts as I will run the flush cut bit around to finish it off. But it fits good as is!
The table will be assembles using threaded inserts and joint bolts found in RTA furniture.
