Updated Animal House felt and matching chips. Tony’s fleece side felt is working out very well so far. Nice feel, cards slide well, and it looks great. Thanks again Tony!

Felts just came in! I have to say the material and print colour/sharpness far exceed anything I've sampled. I haven't felt a cloth like this before and I really don't know how it could get any better than this! Supper impressed! Thanks so much @Bloo_Design & @T_Chan Once I finalize my full custom design I'll be sure to reach out again right away!

Yes, most of our games are with 10. Last week was only 6 and I needed the round table nor Easter guest anyway, so busted out the old octagon table. AND, Yes! We enjoyed the round table which is what prompted this thread :ROFL: :ROFLMAO:
Check out these two threads - I built a topper for an existing table, and was inspired by @bsdunbar1 .

No lights on either, but should get you most of the way there...
 
Has anyone recently received a new custom felt from @T_Chan? Just wanted to know what the best way to get the wrinkles and creases out from shipping? Obviously don't want to damage the felt. Any advice definitely appreciated!
 
Mine just came, and it was folded. My buddy who works in the casino with me, and does all the layouts in table games, said to use a garment steamer to get the folds out before installing.

I've tried for hours... and just can't get them out... have you had any luck?

You’ve tried with a garment steamer? I haven’t tried yet. My buddy is going to install it for me and I figured I’d let him handle it.

Litterally bought a new steamer just for the install... no dice unfortunately. Was hoping someone else had a successful solution
 

He says to iron the layout from the back side on low to medium heat.
Yup but unfortunately, my felt wasn't on a roll like in this video. So the creases/wrinkles are the issue for me at this point. Just thought the community might have some insight on some special tricks that I haven't tried yet.

Repeated starch ironing worked for me. It didn’t get it 100% perfect but after installing and letting it settle you can’t even tell it was ever wrinkled.

Amazing! Was that on a recent T_Chan felt? The only reason I ask is just because I know everyone is using slightly different materials... I'll definitely test it out on the excess area of the cloth! Really appreciate the idea!!
 
I’ve done this on a recent Chanman felt and also a thicker casino felt with very deep wrinkles.

On my most recent Chanman I actually let it lay out for a day like this after ironing too before final install. No issues whatsoever. Don’t overthink it. They arrive super wrinkled and they tend to work themselves out it seems. I’ve also heard of some people throwing in the wash but I have not tried that.

That's a beauty! Appreciate the encouragement haha I've had it hanging flat for a few days now. Ironed it today but didn't have much luck. I'll definitely give the starch ironing a shot tomorrow! These pictures are from after ironing today and what I'm working with...

Yep looks pretty standard and how mine looked. Try that starch I posted above. It’s good stuff.
 
Went straight for the starch today @JeepologyOffroad and hit it a few times with the iron. Threw it on the table and as I pulled while stapling, definitely did the trick! Appreciate everyone's tips and tricks for this first timer! @T_Chan @Bloo_Design @Goldfish this table was made from the scraps of my raised rail table build which is being felted next!
