This is a 10 sided poker table a friend and I built from rough cut walnut and cherry. We didn’t have a pattern or plan to work with so we came up with our own. This is our first project of this nature and the first time we have designed our project from the start. Please let me know what you think.

Cutting the 18 degree angles just right was by far the hardest part. We don’t have a commercial taper jig so we had to make one and make sure it was set to the exact angle. This proved to be a lot harder than we anticipated so the table pieces are about 1/2” shorter than originally planned but in the end came out better as the table fit in the room better.

I think it is very well done. Pretty impressive for a first project of this type.

Rob,

We never actually drew up the plan, it was all done as we went. I wish I had the software to be able to draw it up as I researched for a plan but couldn’t find one for a decagon. I found a few for Octogon tables if you want to go eight sided instead of ten.

Thanks for all the great comments. We hope to build a few more of these and sell them. We haven’t figured out ho much to ask for them but it was a fun project and selling them would help pay for the materials to keep us going.

Have your say...
