Thanks, @Teach42, for the recommendation. I installed these 2 handles and it makes carrying the barrington way way easier. Very easy to install, just 4 holes (2 for each handle).

Got an email from WallyWorld about these being on sale for $201.60. They had been out of stock for a long time so they must have found some in a warehouse. Kinda doubt they are every going to be much cheaper at the retail level again. The days of the $100 price may only be found used and/or second hand anymore.

Mine was $100 at Walmart 2 months ago, but it was in Wilkes barre, PA and I feel like it might have been an error. Last one in stock too, sorry :(

$200 is a no brainer honestly. Do it!

Inspired by this thread, I refitted two tables for a buddy of mine this summer. Both of these involved drilling for deeper cupholders, and replacing not only felt, but foam underneath and replacing the vinyl on the rails with pleather (which wound up being the most time consuming aspect of the project).

First up was the blue table. At some point, I'll need to revisit this one, the client and I had a miscommunication and it turned out that he wanted jumbo sized cupholders. When I re-refit this one, I might also raise the rail and add lights.

He was very pleased with how this turned out, and had custom bags made as carrying cases for these tables. If there's interest, I can get specific info from him on those carrying bags.

Nice work on these. I’ve heard people complain that the lights are too bright on the espn table. Did you have to install a dimmer? Also what foam did you use during the replacement?

The lights I used were whatever cheap chinese RGB lightstrip was on special on Amazon that day, LOL. It came with a remote, and they are dimmable. These are very similar to what I installed: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08G92D3NG

I used this foam, also via Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B076XNL217
This synthetic leather worked surprisingly well for the rail vinyl: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08JLVLLBM
My only gripe with it was it arrived folded instead of rolled. But a 1/2 hour or so unfolded on a sunny concrete driveway took care of that...

Great info. I bookmarked this for when I decide to take the upgrade plunge

Every time I look back at this thread, makes me want to get custom felt from Chanman but then I'm conflicted on just building a non-folding custom table with the custom felt....

You find yourself wondering that. Originally got the Barrington because I found it second hand for under $100 and figured a folding table would be great for storage. Since then I have replaced the felt, expanded the cup holders, and can't remember the last time I folded it up for storage.

So while the table still works great, I sometimes wonder why I didn't just build a fully custom table.

Yeah, I modded mine out with help of this thread. Even put USB chargers under rail for every seat and never fold my table up. Contemplating just making it one solid piece of wood on top, padding, felting and calling it a day
