This is my version of Junell’s Poker Table that so many have made. It is a cherry plywood racetrack.


Some enhancement I made… All cuts were made by a router. The arched cuts were done with a circle cutting jig and the straight cuts with a straight edge. The cuts are much cleaner than would be expected from a jigsaw. Also the armrest is not permanently attached so that it can be stored separately. The fabric play area is entirely removable because it is attached with phenolic knobs visible from the bottom view. This will make changing or cleaning the fabric much easier. Finally, on the bottom (not in this picture) I attached to carrying handles. The handles are spaced 48 inches apart so that they can also be used to suspend the table from hooks on a wall. The 48 inches is 3 studwidths in the wall.

The table is great for play. I have used it over 50 times and it is holding up great.

slick looking table. I made one years ago that I loaned to my brother. It ended up leaning against a wall outside and has since been incinerated. Gotta love brothers that respect the work you put into things.

I’m sure the folding legs come in handy when you need to store it. Nice poker table, I like the rounded sides.
