Some gents at a local organization wanted an upgraded table for their regular card games. This one similar to what they had, just better woods and finish. No base, they just wanted a top to go over an existing plain table. Red oak from my own place with Hond. mahogany. Padded felt of the type used for pool tables. Felt surface 38” across flats, pockets 2 1/2” deep. They wanted a grainy appearance, so I didn’t use a paste filler. Grainy they got.
I’m fairly pleased with the outcome, just wish I had more time to work on it. Lesson learned, as a part-time woodworker, be careful what you promise as to delivery. Finish barely dry before 8 guys were playing at it.
