This was built a few years ago as a first woodworking project. I learned a lot from this project. The lessons learned were:
1 – Cheap tools will give you cheap results: It does make sense to spend the extra $ to get more precise tools
2 – Measure twice… actually measure 3 times…
3 – Plan
4 – Beer doesn’t suddenly give you mighty super powers… :-(
It was a fun project. I had a few games and actually used the table for a prop for website we developed for Poker training and was signed by Daniel Negreanu.
If I had to redo it, I would cut the drink holders with a router, cut the curves of table with a router as well. I’d cut the plywood with my Festool circular saw. I would also make it a table with “final” legs and would bent the wood to make it a nicer rail. The finishing took about 7 coats, sanding, etc…
