This is a cherry poker table with a plywood base I was requested to build for an avid poker player at my work. The outside ring of cherry is removable form the base which all the fabric is glued to. The fabric, which has hearts spade clubs and diamonds woven in, and the brass cup holders were purchased from an online poker supply store. The legs are the folding type burchased at the big box store of $20, this was requested so he could store the table when not in use. The design is a wood smith design but I drew the plans in sketchup from pictures on the Web.
As you can see I had a little issue when routing one of the circles for the brass cup holders and it blew into 8 pieces when it caught the end grain in the right hand side of the circle. I crawled around an found all eight pieces and glued them back together and you can see the results of the glue up in picture 3. The recipient could not figure out which holder was the one that was broken.
here are a few more pictures
