Ok I can't play online. So I'll play at home.

Post by MrSmooth67 on Sun Aug 07, 2011 11:55 pm

Hey there allstars whats been going on.
I've been doing good. I'm still going thru online poker withdraws but I have another way to curb my appetite.
I'm building my own 10 man poker table. here is a few pics of it in the making. Hope you all like what you see.
This is my base...

This is the framing for the base to give it strength.

This is a top view of how thick it is as well as the arm rail & race track.

This is a side view.

This is the center that I will felt with speed cloth (green)

Here is the base of the table

Here's the base painted black

Here's the base of the table painted black.

Here is the base and top together. Still very early stages of this project...

Table top on top of painted base.


Ok now the fun really begins... No No No

This was kind of easy until I tried to cut it all out..my hands were running out of gas and it got very hard to cut towards the end.





I'm taking the 4" arm rail and gluing it to the foam. I measured the 1" closed cell foam 1" wider on both sides of the rail. This is to help cover the sides of your arm rail.


Now comes the really good stuff.Installing the cover. Mad Mad Mad
You need a whole lot of patience's to do this... I found out there is a lot of pulling of staples re-stretching the cover re-stapling and so on and so forth. It took me and my girlfriend nearly 2 days to get this perfect. Patience Patience Patience... Shocked Shocked Shocked









Shown here are all the staples that are in this. (After pulling staple and re-stapling.)

Here I have it back on the table just to get an idea of what she's starting to look like. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy




Well Folks you are up to speed with me and my project...I'm still waiting on my cup holders which will be here on Monday the 8th. I will then cut in 10 holes on the race track, Stain and polyurethane the race track put the felt in the center and then sit back and rake in pot after pot while entertaining all my friends... as soon as I progress in the rest of this project I'll post all updated pics in this post so you allstars can see the final results... Take care my friends....

The reason I'm not playing is because most if not all sites I played on previously don't cater to the U.S. anymore...
If and when our Government decides to get this figured out I will return then... Until that time comes I'm just a rail bird. Crying or Very sad

Here is a few more pics of the progress... Not really LMAO...The cups came in so i just sat them on the table to get an idea of what they will look like.

A few pics of the cut outs of the race track



Now the staining begins.


Now the urethane 3 coats and the cup holders as well to just to see how the table will look.



Now with the rail back on it's starting to take shape and look like a poker table.




TO BE CONTINUED...

[b]Finished.... Well almost. I just need to sand some of the urethane out of the holes for the cup holders so the cups sit flush to the surface.. Other then that Allstars' My table is DONE... Now I would like to say I got the idea from a lot of free plans on how to build a poker table online... So I did my research on a lot of different plans and chose what I thought would be the easiest to do...I did the whole project by myself except for the covering of the arm rail that took another set of hands and an entire weekend. So if an Allstar gets the itch to tackle there very own table remember to take your time and think things through.





A close-up of the felt...

Why thank you RSD I have to say this was a project that I absolutely took a lot of pride in building. I have been kicking around the idea in my head of making a 2nd table but I'm on the fenced as to what type. a round table or octagon or another racetrack style.
