There is an amazing sense of pride that comes from being able to tell your friends that you made, with your own two hands, the poker table that they are sitting at. If you have ever used a tape measure, a saw or a staple gun, you can build a one of a kind poker table.
Before you can start your project, youll need wood. A good choice is usually Red Oak because it is a hardwood which is known for its durability and beauty. When you are measuring the size of your table, remember to take into account that you will be adding rails along the edge, these will take up surface space, so you will need to plan accordingly.
Find a piece of wood large enough for the table surface or two pieces that will fit together nicely to form the surface. Next, the wood needs to be cut out in an oval shape according to the size of the table. After the tabletop is made, a one-inch rim needs to be made and it should be cut to fit the tabletop and glued into place. Once the rim is in place, a rail needs to be measured and cut out so it fits nicely onto the rim. This will prevent cards and chips from falling off the table.
Next, a pad should be fitted to the table so the table will have a soft feeling. Holes need to be cut through the padding to fit the corresponding holes in the table that were made to hold the chips, cups, plates, etc. Then the table is covered with a soft velvet like cloth. Some people prefer a billiards table cover, just be sure to cut holes in the cloth to line up with the holes in the table.
After getting the table padded and covered, the rail needs to be padded. This can be completed by simply cutting out the padding to the exact measurements of your rail then covering it with a layer of vinyl. When covering the padding, be sure to pull the material tight and use a large amount of staples so it will stay that way.
The beauty of building your own table is that you can personalize it to fit your needs and wants. If you would like directions that are more precise, there are handbooks available on the subject of building a poker table, which can be purchased at almost any online poker store.
