Never used one, but from the looks of it, it seems really thin. Ad says "heavy duty 1" thick wood table" but I'd assume that 1" is not heavy duty. Rails look pretty thin as well and might not be too comfortable. Not sure about the felt, but there may be no foam between the felt and the wood which is not great for poker.
If you’re somewhat handy, or have a friend who is, you could build one yourself for that cost and use much better materials. There are quite a few build threads on the forum and a lot of helpful, knowledgeable people to get you through it if you decide to go that route.
Can anybody tell me if I will need to brace the table to avoid sagging in the middle. The kid at lowes guarantee it will sag after 6 months if I don't brace.
The problem is that I don't know anything about woodworking. The man in the youtube video appears to have a smaller oval cutout under the table top....is this what he is using to brace the table and give it extra support?
the piece you used to cut the rail from you screw into the bottom of the other piece, this acts as your brace. my table is made from two pieces of 3/4 inch maple plywood and is 12 years old and does not sag.
