This is a poker table I built for my son for his birthday. I chose the burgundy felt since I felt green was too common. I used plans from a magazine with a few personal changes. The cup holders are recessed to prevent cups and bottles from being knocked over, and lined wit cork to protect against moisture from the drinks. The chip holders are aslo recessed to keep the chips from getting mixed up with those in play. The top and chip holders are removable to allow for the felt replacement. The pedestal was made using a birds mouth bit on a router table. The legs are made from gluing up 3/4 stock and a round over set deep enough to create a step for a small detail that adds more than it appears. All edges have been rounded over using various sizes of bits. The table top measures approx. 65” across. To move the table the felt palying surface is removed then the top is unbolted from the base. If necessary the legs can aslo be unbolted from the pedstal.
