Learning project. It’s 48” across and 32” tall. The outer ring is 2-1/4” thick oak. Base is Beetle Kill Pine.

I have never made one before. Now I have to build 2 more.

Finished with Danish Oil, Tung Oil and wipe on poly.

Man-o-man. That looks great! Talk about perfect for a man cave! Good job. I like how the live edge flows around. Pretty sweet

Very nice! I’m sure it’ll get plenty of use. Is the center inlay or top felt covered MDF or slate as a pool table would be?

Center is 3/4” plywood with a pad and felt. Bought the felt on Amazon.

Very nice. I can see my buddies and I play cards and tossing back a few cold ones around that table.

That turned out really well! That is some great gnarly live edge oak on the top. A cheap idea: that dense white foam floor underlayment makes good pad under the felt.

Extra nice Monte… you have really created a nice group of rustic creations that your own design…

That’s a good looking poker table, love the edges. What tool did you cut them on?

Monte have you considered making a poker table with 51.43° corners?

Very nice Monte…love the live edge. What did you use to cut in the drink and chip holders? Looks like a router and a large forestner bit.
