Very nice design! I like the way each players space is clearly defined. Did you come up with the design it yourself, or get your inspiration from another piece?

Very nice design. Plan on routing in slots for chips or drinks? I guess not now that its finished :( Still though, great looking table!

Great looking table! I bet you can’t wait to break it in.

I’ve always preferred a nice slick surface to tables with cupholders and chipholders.

I just looked at the scrap wood I had and it seemed to grow from there no plan. It is all solid 1/2 wood on top of a 3/4 plywood base. No veneer. I was going to add cup and chip holders but I have played and it seems most don’t use them or they fill up with spilt drinks and dirt.

Cool looking poker table… Have to say that it might get scuffed up a little depending on who wins the pot…
