I’ll be starting my 3rd table build. First table I built was in college. No rail, just plain oval table some carpet padding then felt. Worked great, although chips were being knocked over and drinks being spilled. Then I built my second table. 44x96 with a nice padded rail. Was a great asset to the poker tourneys I’ve hosted.

Now , it leads me to my 3rd table build completely custom. I’ve spent the money and purchased a chanman cloth. Very excited about that to come in the mail. All my previous felts I’ve never glued. Any insight, is it good or bad?
I’m also gonna be doing a raised rail with opaque acrylic and led lighting. How big of a rail you guys consider comfortable. 5, 6, 7 inches? The raised rail is what I’ve been thinking the most on. I’m probably gonna do a 1 inch raised rail. I feel that be most comfortable. How do you guys attach your acrylic to the table? Route a groove in the rail or the table top, or double sided tape?

I’m excited on the build, thinking it’ll take me a few weeks to complete, unless the lady will allow me some free time

This weekend I will finally be getting around to building my table. Still need to get a few supplies, led light's some adhesive for the foam, and the acrylic. I believe home depot should carry what I am looking for. Looking forward to getting this project done, so we can get some use out of it. Stay tuned for some pictures!

Made some progress today. Had to make some more jigs, couldnt locate the ones I had when I built my other two tables. Made the trip to Home Depot, but I didn’t care for there selection of acrylic. So I’ll have to call local plastic place in town on Monday. In meantime keep the progress going. Should be able to get the felt, and rail upholstered by tomorrow. Just will have to wait for my lighting to arrive on Monday too! Worst case scenario, finish raised rail following weekend

Check out tap plastics. They have cut to size diffusers up to 94” long and pretty quick shipping. They also have multiple different options and samples sizes.

All my tables I have wrapped the felt under, never had any issues. I’m not entirely sure how he assembles the rail, but I’d think his rail sits right on top of the felt that he has stapled. He might be able to go more in depth of why he does assemble the felt like he does.

I was able to get the rail assemble. I remember why I haven’t built a table in awhile! Trying to stretch the vinyl by yourself is no easy task. For most part I thought it turned out good, had to pull a few staples and re stretch.
