Good to know! A friend of mine has an old folding table. It looks to be just like the Barringtons, so it's sturdy, but the pad and felt is terrible. I grabbed a couple pieces of padding from a carpet layer friend of mine, and I'm going to get some outdoor fabric and get a decent surface on it.Cards slide great. Water does not transfer thru. The material is not as soft to the touch as other tables that I have played on but feels very durable and should last a very long time.
