Hello everyone, I’m new to the forum and new to poker table building in general although I have a fairly strong background in cabinet making, auto upholstery, construction and fabrication. I joined here to garner more knowledge on methods and materials as I do intend to continue building custom tables. Ill post up some pics of my first table, its various build stages and its finished look. Open to any and all advice, criticism(constructive or objective) and looking forward to learning more on the topic!

The table looks awesome. Nice work!
what’s the white ribbon for? Are you using it as a diffuser?
Yes, after exhaustive searching for a plastic diffusing material in roll form, I was shopping at Walmart one day and walked past the ribbon.... it was the exact size and thickness I needed and it was 2$ lol It diffuses perfectly and is waterproof lol

That’s awesome. I’ve been looking for something like this for a long time. How did you mount it?

Its just the right thickness to fit between the race track outer edge and the light rail under the raised rail. I stapled it in before I installed the racetrack and raised rail, but in hindsight It might be better to staple it to the outer edge of the racetrack while pulling it tight around the corners. Its 1 1/2” wide so its just the right height to sit right under the raised upholstered rail. Depending on your set up you may need different installation methods.
