Hi All,

I'm pretty new to the scene and have lurked here and there on the PCF. I've been wanting to build a poker table and host a home game for about a year now, and I have finally decided to start the project!

I have absolutely no woodworking, upholstering, etc experience. But I am really proud of how this turned out! Thank you anyone who has posted any guides/tips on this website because it was really helpful.

Here are the pictures:

Any process you followed / tips? I don’t have a lot of experience either but if I can build one like that I would be thrilled.

Congrats it’s very nicely done.
 
Clean build, nice job and thanks for sharing.

You got good height on your rail - what foam and vinyl did you use?
I got those from Your Auto Trim Shop (YAT). 1" Rail foam, and the XTREME vinyl. Getting the inside of the railing was really tough, there were a few places where the vinyl ripped a little too close to the playing area. Not sure if I didn't use enough relief cuts, or if the vinyl rips a bit easier than other types.

This thread is very helpful: https://www.pokerchipforum.com/threads/poker-table-building-guides-tips-tricks.64206/#post-2152339

I think I searched through the poker table topic on this website and a few threads were mentioning YAT (your auto trim shop). It is a great place to get foam/speed cloth if you can't find any local suppliers.

I got the building instructions from this youtube video:
I made a few modifications, since I would be putting this on top of a folding beer pong table. So I added some guide pieces of wood to keep it in place.
 
This turned out very nice for a first build.

Any plans on adding a betting line or some nice table toppers?

I need to pull the trigger on a build. I have the tools and love building things. Thanks for the inspiration.
 
Not sure if I want to add a betting line yet, I think after a few home games hosted we’ll get an idea for what feels right.

What do you mean by a table topper?

It came out really nice brother, especially for not having any experience in woodwork and upholstery.
