This is basically what I've been trolling for:

10+ seater, 96" x ~45".
No cup holders.
No race track.
Padded rail.
Green high-quality suited speed cloth.
Folding legs, high quality.
NOT a folding playing surface.

Just some 2 cents, additional input to consider!

Consider adding a 3/4" raised rail.
Consider upgrading to custom-printed gaming suede.

Out of curiosity, why raise the rail if you are not adding LED lights? We always work towards making the raise as low as possible when adding LEDs because of what a POA they can be playing on if you raise them.

I've played on them without a problem and I'm 5'6.. Not a problem...

If it's okay with lights it's okay without lights...

Sometimes the rail is raised to accommodate signage, not lights.

I think a table cover is a nice to have - it allows you to have an extra table in the house that can be used as a table. Cue COVID-19 - how many people would be grateful that the poker table can be converted into a study place for one of the kids. I see no downside other than the slight annoyance of having to take the toppers on/off.

And with lights, you always have the option to turn them off but you can't turn them on if you don't have them. So when @BGinGA comes to play, you can just switch them off - or actually leave them on just to tilt him :)

good thought! maybe a wood insert inside the rail for homework?

certainly! for sponsors and events, i thought this was for a home game?
Sometimes the signage is part of the theme -- tables that represent ice hockey rinks, football stadiums, or auto racing tracks.

A betting line on the "felt" is very-very useful, IMO.
You can still have one on Suited Speed Coth by having @T_Chan print a white SSC for you into green with (eg) a gold betting line.

Rail height shouldn't be too much IMO. I 'd like it to be just 10chips high (max) in relation to the playing surface.
Twice as much would shield even a chip barrel from being knocked out of the table, but it would feel like playing into a bucket.

Semi-custom's an option and cheaper than full custom.

Also, dining table covers are very, very functional.

Tony, I guess that, for a more modern or minimalistic look, you could offer dining toppers without side skirts. letting the rail show.

Are you printing in house Tony? If not let us know if you are looking for a printer!

Yes, we print them ourselves.

Cheers.

Yes for sure, the dining table covers are also cheaper if you omit the skirting.

The reason when I build a table,my first priority is the table and second poker. Plus I can always change the game.
