This was a gift I made for some friends of mine that were getting married. I knew in advance that their parents were getting them a beautiful new dining table and they were worried about it getting damaged during our weekly poker games so I made this to fit perfectly over that table. it fold in half for storage and the center sections slide out for cleaning or recovering. I have since recovered it with a green fabric that the cards slide much better on. The green looks better too.

The only thing I didn’t do fully myself is the cup holders. The oak bits were banister caps (or whatever these are called) I bought from home depot, and the brass inserts were bought online.

There were a lot of first in this project and I probably didn’t use the best techniques on some things but it came out great.

That looks great. Looks just right for a game of ‘hi-low-buy-roll’.
