Last week I picked up my new poker table. I blurred out the writing in the middle of the spade, because it's my last name. Here are the details and pictures...

The TABLE (96"x45") was built by @Irish. He did an AMAZING job. The details are outstanding !! He worked with me the whole way, to get it exactly how I wanted, and it's 100% perfect. He built the table topper also, which is a perfect fit. Thank you Irish, for creating a work of art. I had my first game on it last Thursday and everyone LOVED it.

The FELT I designed based on my personal poker logo (custom cut cards and dealer button), and @Irish helped me tweak it to the final outcome. It was printed by @T_Chan. The colors and feel are so sweet !! He really brought my thoughts to life, and worked with us for several days until we got it to the approval stage. The felt is OUTSTANDING looking.
But, I do have a problem with it. The cards don't slide well, and stop pretty quickly. There are sticky spots on the felt. T-Chan indicated the felt was the end of a role and the ink didn't absorb fully into the felt, which is causing that sticky issue. He is making good and going print a new felt that he plans to send out soon. That's TOP NOTCH SERVICE!! Between Irish & T_Chan... this table is a BEAUTIFUL BEAST ! You just can't stop looking at it and wanting to play poker !!

I added some of my own features once I got it home...
- I installed a drawer with a chip tray in it.
- I installed 10 USB ports under each cup holder.
- I provide 3 different kind of USB wires
- My chairs were maroon to match my old table... some black fabric spray paint, and they match my new table.

Love that table top/cover - does it have alignment things to keep it in place or does it just stay with the weight?

I was concerned about that before it was built... moving from leaning on it. But the weight is heavy, and it doesn't move at all. It's very solid, and functional as a table now too.

Nice setup!

One question - I've never heard of fabric spray paint. Any issue with rubbing off, cracking or staining clothes?
Zero so far. Everyone joked about it the first time the chairs were used. But it didn't come off, rub, smudge, crack, etc... i even took water and put it on, to see it would run. Nothing. The fabric is a little harder and not so soft anymore, but i think that it will get soft again after use (no biggie if it doesn't) But, the black doesn't come off at all. It's like the chairs were black to start.

These were my initial concerns when seeing that. Glad it’s working well. Would be curious to get a report after a year of use. ;)

The new table looks awesome, Congratulations! The USB ports are a great idea, and every time I see them, I keep thinking how that would be so cool. My only problem would be that I don’t have a plug in the floor and would somehow have to run a cord from the wall to under the table. How do you deal with getting the electric to the table?

Good question. I run it inside the leg going down, it comes out the bottom and brought home from work protector from work. Used two sided tape to hold it down. It runs between two chairs. The power cord is 10' long, and also I have the one with the FLAT plug, so no one bangs into it.

That looks like it works with the wood floor...probably stays put with rubber protector on the hard wood. Do you think that would work on carpet?
