I live in a pretty small apartment, and I'm wondering if I could get away with making a table like the one shown below made by @T_Chan using threaded inserts so that I could disassemble the table for storage between games. I'd love to hear what you guys think of this idea!

@T_Chan, do you think this idea could work?
That would be no problem. Threaded inserts with bolts, or some other quick release device would do the trick.

If you were to go with @allforcharity's suggestion of doing a dining table cover for the same size table, you can even handle that on your own. A 4' diameter topper wouldn't be hard to remove and replace by yourself.

There are so many nice tables in this thread. Some of you guys really play on works of art.
Here's my humble build that I did earlier this year. I was working on a pretty thight budget, but I'm very happy with how it turned out as it was my first time doing anything like this. It's a topper that fits on top of my dinner table. It's somewhat small as it fits 6 players comfortably and 8 max.

Another idea for a non-permanent table would be screwing /srcrewable legs (assist pass for the out-of-context thread) :whistle: :whistling: onto the under surface of the table

Finishing up a dining table topper for a customer who has an existing table and wanted the topper to be the same size as the table underneath... 6 feet!

Yep that's a 6' diameter poker table topper. Normally I would dissuade someone from getting such a big table, but they were already playing on their 6' table normally as a poker table but wanted to get something nicer to play on.

Did he request 8 of these to go along with the table?

Just received some photos from a customer who received their table last week. Their photography sills are far superior to mine.

Cappuccino whisper vinyl rail, 6" wide
Jumbo s/s cup holders
3/4" raised rail, maple stained ebony
Gaming suede felt
10" dual pedestal with princess feet, solid maple, stained ebony
Solid maple dining table cover in ebony stain. Pencil top profile.

Awesome!
What is the color of the felt? Is it a gray or blue or maybe gray-blue. Love it.
And that cappaccino rail is great.

I needed a smaller table that I could easily store. So I sold my elliptical table and built this smaller table for our cash games. I was hoping to take some pictures of it in use but most of my cash players were in the tournament till the end so we never made it to the new cash table. It was my first time working with vinyl (my other tables have padded suede) and the rail definitely needs some improvement. Those corners are a bit trickier than one would think. I do a lot of learning by trial and error and that was definitely the case here. So at some point I'll redo the rail but it'll work for now. One more shout out to @T_Chan for powder coating the cup holders for me so I could have quality black cup holders on my all black table.

There might be problems close-up, but those rails look fine in the photos.
