Really cool.Thanks to @slisk250 for reminding me that I needed a place to put my drink in flight.
Special thanks to @k9dr for the measurements - Literally took months off the project timing.
And a very, very special thanks to @T_Chan for the scrap fabric.
The mantra for the day was "well, it's not a Chanman quality table", as trying to develop something that would transform from a briefcase into a poker table ran into numerous logistical hurdles. In the end, we decided to stuff the whole thing into a sight fitting sack and ditched the briefcase idea, but the option to make it a single case is still viable.
...but you want the pr0n, don't you...

Set coasters, and insert middle rails - middle rails provide support as that bridges the gap between tables. Plan currently involves using ceramics, with the hope they look less intimidating to the airport xray machine.

Board gets a little crowded with poker-size cards. I may pack up bridge size instead, but I am really fond of the Bicycle Prestige card boxes. If we have to pack up in a hurry (like the person in the window set has to pee, or the plane is about to crash) the Prestige box allows packing the cards very quickly.

More pics when we get this baby airborne enroute to SQM!
We bring the shaker and the olives. The olives are soaked in vermouth overnight, then placed in a ziploc bag with just a little vermouth. On the plane we ask for 2 vodkas, one with ice and one without.Love this!
I always thought airlines prohibit consumption of alcohol not purchased from them.
