Continuation of things to go to the rally. The poker table seats 8. It’s 60 inches wide and 29-1/2 inches tall. Made of Beetle Kill Pine. I wanted a tressel style base. But after I made the top I didn’t like my original design. Slept on it over night and decided on this base. It gives equal support to all 8 sections. Numerous coats of oil based poly. My brother did the cloth on the playing surface.

Thanks for reading and all comments are welcome.

Great looking table.
Odds are this table will draw a handsome dollar.

Gotta tell ya, that is one nice table. I would be broke in about 10 minutes…Oh wait, I’m already broke..but I would enjoy sitting around it loosing poker chips. Take a table cut for awhile before you sell it, that’s where the real money is.

Looks great, Monte! What kind of cloth is it? Are the top and base permanently joined?
Thanks for sharing. I agree, it won’t last long.

Another Monte winner! Display that poker table in your booth with some cards, poker chips some of your beer mugs and some stogies. The Sturgis crowd will be fighting over who brings it home with ‘em.

I don’t play poker, but that’s a fine looking table. Well done.

IMHO you’ve achieved your goal: this is a real game changer, especially with the fun loving Stirgis crowd. You’re like the “energizer bunny”—no stopping the flow of your creative juices. Best wishes.

It’s a nice poker table, Monte. That would be just right for my brother’s river cabin. That table would hold up to a lot of games of ‘High Low Buy Roll’ even if they went on all night which they usually did.

You have got to be superman! I’m unable to imagine how you will get all your trunks, this table and everything else you’ve produced out to the show. I know a super large rental ruck for households? And a bunch of movers? Wow, I’m totally blown away with your productivity.

Good luck!
