I'll slap a few pictures in here along the way - got a new Bosch plunge router and made my life 1000x easier for the initial woodworking.

Completed the foundation in 2 hours flat, whereas the first time around it was an absolute nightmare lessons learned

86"x43.5" outside
3" ring for the overhang
6" rail

Felt is 76"x33.5"

18gauge crown staples and woodglue to join the rail and overhang rail.

Still need to sand + round off a few edges with the router, but only have a couple hours this morning. Waiting on the finishing supplies from Tony, and these will have hafele legs. 10 jumbo cupholders as well.

More pics from today's work:

Got the legs on, cupholder holes done, t-nuts and bolts on, ready for the wood rings and then finish work! Foundation is basically done :)

Cool build, thank you for sharing!

Any lessons you learned from build #1 or changes that you made to improve the process or the end result?
A plunge router makes life much easier, I tried getting creative with a fixed base router and that was brutal. I'll be trying a different approach for the rail foam and vinyl as well, I'll let you know how it goes!

Thought I could edit my 2nd post but couldn't :p
6/27/2022 - all done! Final materials arrived from Tony today and I jumped right on it!

I think total time spent on this 2nd table was ~11-13hrs all-in. I didn't "clock-in/clock-out" but I kept pretty good track overall.
6/17 Day 1 - 2 hours (foundation for woodworking, base + rail + overhang cuts)
6/18 Day 2 - 4 hours (finished routing a few edges, got legs on, drilled + placed t-nuts + bolts, hole saw for cupholders, sanding)
6/27 Day 3 - 6 hours (glued wooden rings for cupholders, rail foam cut + glued on, rail vinyl stapled, closed cell playing surface foam glued, felt put on + stapled + ironed, bolted rail onto table + we're done!)

Final pics from today:

Lots of fun building these! Might need to tackle a raised rail table next :D

This table rail is ~ .5 inch more narrow than the first table, 5.5in to 6in.
I also went much tighter with the vinyl on this one than I did on the first one.

Vinyl was soooooo much easier after following the exact steps on this thread https://www.pokerchipforum.com/threads/re-upholstering-poker-table-rail.41438/

I also used the turkey cutter to cut the cupholder holes in the rail foam from the inside of the holes instead of using a razor blade OUTSIDE of the holes. That made the cupholders look a bit nicer on this table.

I only used adhesive spray on top of the rail instead of trying to bend the foam around the rail foundation, I just cut 1.5in and 1in outside and inside, respectively (as following along with the above thread)

I'll end up selling one of these to a friend, it may end up posted on facebook by him as he has heard of more folks upstate paying very good money for these tables (we might partner up on them, I'm not sure yet, might just pay him a finders fee to find the buyers :D ) , so I might end up building a few more in the near future if the market is good enough upstate for it.
(mentioning this in case someone sees it on facebook marketplace soon haha)

Thanks for reading along! Lmk if anyone has questions about other steps in the process. (i'm still learning myself, but very happy with how much faster this one came out)

Thanks @T_Chan and @GirlFriday_Chanman for the excellent materials again! I'm sure I'm place another order shortly :D

Thanks @Irish again for the tips!

On my first table I used two hole saws and a drill press. Screw the inside circle to a piece of scrap the drill the outside followed by the inside.

For my second table I graduated to a router and a circle jig. A little messier but way easier.

Tables look sweet! What's the easiest way to make the cup rings?
I just buy them for $3 a piece from @T_Chan - I believe there are a few vendors that offer them, and $3 a piece is well worth the price VS the effort put into making 20 router cuts with my circle jig (and putting that extra strain on my router bits) :ROFL: :ROFLMAO: Tony uses a CNC so that makes life much easier of course!
