Poker Table Photos - Poker nights just got a lot more fun! :) :) :) :)
Racetrack table with black vinyl, oak top stained cherry, with emerald green playing surface. This was my first time building a poker table. For the racetrack, I used four coats of Minwax Cherry 235 stain and 4 coats of water-based Varathane satin polyurethane finish. I chose satin because I wanted the wood to look more natural and avoid excessive fingerprints from showing up. I recommend using nice brushes for staining and finishing. Purdy makes very nice brushes. I used an all natural white bristle brush for my stain and a Syntax nylon brush for my finish. Both are worth the investment for future projects. I was surprised at how expensive the hole saw and attachment adaptor were, but found that it really is the way to go when making holes in an inch and half of plywood. That would have been horrible to try with a jigsaw! Buying the cheaper wood screws lead to lots of broken screws and frustration. I exchanged them for Saber Drive multi-purpose screws and they were amazing! Well worth the extra 3 bucks. I wanted my table legs to be removable. I decided to go with these from amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Black-Adjustable-Table-Leg-Set/dp/B001DSZVTI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1448505917&sr=8-1&keywords=screw+on+table+legs They are sturdy and look great for the price. The most difficult part was upholstering. Achieving tight, smooth edges was very challenging. When attempting the curves I found it easiest to choose a spot about 1/4 of the way around the turn, pull the vinyl/speed cloth tight and staple. Then pull it tight between the beginning of the turn and that spot you just stapled and then staple again. Then repeat this process between the three points you just created. Difficult to describe but it makes each section much more manageable. Otherwise you end up with bunches of vinyl on the ends of the table which is no good! Overall, I felt the table turned out really great. Let me know if you need any advice! I would love to help in any way I c
