My Raised Rail Poker Table Build (1 Viewer)

Definately the hardest part of the build so far and i cant feel my finger tips. Im still not completely happy with some uneven bumps in the vinyl so I’ll probably remove and restaple some areas later on. Overall looks decent for a first timer.

@joshualopez1 are you planning on adding any lighting? Have you selected a LED diffuser?

If so, which one?

Here's the type of acrylic that I'm using on my current table project. They call it "sign" white from the place where I got it. I purchased a whole 4x8 sheet and just cut it on my table saw with a fine blade. In the 2nd picture, you can see how well this material diffused the COB LED stringer. You'll see the actual colour code below as "WT-7328" hopefully this helps you find something from a plastics seller close to you!

It looks good to me. But when you make something yourself you know where all the imperfections are.

I will sell it, it's just usually a bit cost prohibitive for rail foam since it's so bulky. https://canada.foambymail.com/ ships to Canada for orders of $100+. Unfortunately for me they do it only for certain parts of Canada, and my location is outside of their zone.
Ya for sure, I totally get it! Can you recommend a playing field foam that would be best under your Smooth PG Suede and a rail foam from their site? There's sooo many to choose from that it's dizzying haha The only downside as well is that their rail foam only comes 48" wide so I would have to seam the foam. Do you think the seam in the foam would be noticeable after textured vinyl?
 
TAP Plastics acrylic arrived as well as handles and some copags, never tried bridge size cards so excited to try them out. Have a SSC from YAT arriving tomorrow to place while the @T_Chan cloth arrives next month. ‍ Almost there

This table turned out awesome! Just getting into this hobby and this is next level stuff. When's the inaugural debut?

I think I'm going to need to put a custom table like this on my list of things to do. Would you change anything for your next time around?

The only thing i would probably change is cut the table down a bit. I left it whole 48X96 and its pretty heavy. i should've cut it down to 44X92 possibly. Other than that im pretty happy with my first build.

If you went a little smaller, do you think you would be able to squeeze in 10 if needed with 8 or 9 people being ideal?

I've also seen some discussion regarding no cup holders in the rail and using the movable type. Did this come up in your design process when getting ready to build this?
