My brother-in-law said he has wanted a poker table when his man cave was completed. I was between projects and said, why not. Man what a learning experience this was. There is a lot of wood in this thing and for only the price of the wood, he got one.
I used some of procedures I found on http://picasaweb.google.com/Boper229/BoperSPokerTable and some from a set of plans I bought from The New Yankee Workshop. One big thing that helped was the Shop Geek’s web with the calculations for octagons (http://www.shopgeek.ca/projects/poker-table/). The third picture is the jig I made to route out the chip section with a pattern bit. I found a set of ratcheting clamps at Harbor Freight at a nominal price.
The wood is red oak and is stained with English Chestnut and three coats of General Finishes Semi.
Oh and I was able to convince my wife that because of my brother-in-law, I needed a new sliding compound miter saw. All is good!
