Picking this WPT table up for $20 on Sunday, going to attempt to put down new foam and speed cloth. A nice mini project before I attempt my full build....will take pics and update here.

I have played on one of those tables. It is sturdy but the felt is horrible! It was all wrinkled and kind of floated.

Looking forward to how it turns out, good luck.

I’ve looked at refurbishing one of these, lots of rivets holding the top and rail on, but drill them out and it should be an easy job.

Finally was able to pick up the table, ended up getting it for $10! Need to take a closer look to see what it will take to get the rail off and get new foam and speed cloth on it. It’s a little smaller (48 inches) then what I would like but should make a great overflow table. The rail is in decent shape and the legs are still tight/sturdy. Stay tuned...

It will fit 6 people easy which is plenty for the start of a cash game as players bust from a tournament. Then once a bigger table is open they can move to it. Great option to have and it doesn’t take much space. Great pick up for $10.

I reupholstered some dining room chairs a number of years back. One tip I can think of -- if there are lot of staples to remove, buy a staple remover, but not the kind you squeeze together between your fingers - the ones that have something like a screwdriver handle, for more leverage. Depending on the type/depth/holding power etc. of the staple, even a cheap plastic one might do the trick, but they all have a flat metal part to get under the staple.
