Poker Table

With a felt top, chip compartments, and built-in drink coasters, this poker table is a sure bet.

What could be more enjoyable than pulling a chair up to this classic poker table for a game of cards with a few friends? But that will come later. First, you’ll get to take on the challenge of building the table. With all the features you see above — felt playing surface, builtin coasters, veneered trim, and the great-looking pedestal base, you might think this project would be pretty difficult to build. And I’ll admit, there are a few things here that will expand your skills. But even with all the extras, it goes together surprisingly easy. To streamline the job, I used premade parts to build the base. This allows you to focus your efforts on the all-important top. You’ll find the key here is simply taking on the job in small steps. And the table doesn’t need to be limited to poker games. Add the optional wood cover, and it’s a great table for any use.
