Played on the table twice now and noticed one big thing that I don't like. The playing surface is so slick that sometimes when I deal to positions 3, 4 & 5 the cards would stick between the table and the rail and lift up a bit. I'm in the process of raising the rail with one sheet of plywood. I'm not sure how I would to finish the edge yet, any suggestions?

1" strip of wood veneer - home depot has red oak and white birch - that's what I did for my raised rail.

Against the advice from PCF members and my better judgement I went ahead and lifted my rail up 1.25".
Nothing was done permanently and can easily be reduced in thickness or removed if the height is uncomfortable for the players.
I found a local cabinet shop that was advertising left over T-Molding for sale and picked up this "brushed steel" look plastic edge banding.

Looks clean!
Are you going to test run it for one game then decide?

Someday when I can manage to host a bigger/better homegame and hire a dealer(or teach my kid to deal cards lol), I will want to make a badass table like this. Looks great!

Sick table.

1) I know you solved this issue, but for non-raised tables where cards are going under the rail: I had this problem with a previous table, and the simple solution was to get some white cotton twine, lay it around the problem area, and push it in until you couldn’t see it. A card might still manage to get in a 1/4” or so but it won’t disappear.

2) Love the use of the boat-shaped table. The subtle curve of the long sides is good for both the dealer (more width at the middle) and for players’ sight lines.

I built a super-ellipse table, and the shape is not unlike your modified boat. The players on the long sides can see each other better.

Really exceptional execution. The brushed metal raised rail matched to the board area is a nice touch to bring the table together.

Despite not being a fan of dealer trays I really really love this table.
That custom felt really makes it!
Hat's off to you sir.

once i seen the cloth ,i see the concept with the carbon fiber t-molding. that would also have looked amazing. The brushed steel will still show up in a medium lighted room no so sure the carbon fiber would have. Fantastic work, hope you many happy games
