I have a really small pocket size (lol) kreg. I'd love to get a bench mounted one, especially for how often I use it.

Finished the 2 coats of poly on top and coat on bottom. Sanded and cleaned up the pieces yesterday.

Spray painted a couple coats of espresso brown and then a matte clear coat to the corrugated plastic.

Attached the plastic to the frame with the modified truss screws.

This is where the mirror will go. Estimated delivery next week.

Attached it with Liquid Nails and taped it and then piled some heavy things on top for it to bond overnight.

Tomorrow: planning on cutting and adhering the pyramid rubber. Then we wait for the custom layout!

Wow, how incredible! Were you following any plans? Did you include speedbumps?

Thanks! No plans, built it all by feel. I run into little problems all of the time and have to overcome but I looked at a lot of pictures of casino tables, so more or less knew what I wanted.
What do you mean by “Speedbumps?” I did buy pyramid rubber to use on the ends. I need to armor all it too before I install it tomorrow.

I plan on trying to build one of these in the future. This is a model!
Speedbumps are put underneath the playing surface so that throwers cannot slide the dice along the felt

Interesting, I’ve not heard of that. Makes sense from a casino anti-cheating/manipulation/control perspective.

The layout will be so full that the dice will hit chips or have to be airborne- so sliding them shouldn’t be an issue.

I’ll have time before I get the layout, so I’ll have to think about that. Thanks for bringing that up!

No worries, this has been popular for a long time now in casinos "just in case". I think they just use a thick string under the layout near the prop bets. Definitely a bit extra but it's always best to design with game integrity in mind

Mirror mounted looks great!

Measured and cut the pyramid rubber.

Going to bond it with the same stuff.
The eventual plan is for a padded rail etc with a lip, which is why you can see some screw heads at the top.

Not the highest priority, so that’ll happen later in the summer/fall and we’ll call stage 1 complete. Stage 2 will have a padded rail, place for chips, and two small signs in the wooden square areas on either side of the dealer box.

But for now we’re just waiting for the layout!!
