My daughter got engaged and moved in to a little apartment with her BO. We are big game players we love playing wahoo but we call it DON’T GET MAD then poker and dominoes. Anyhow its a small one bed room apartment with little room so i did folding legs instead. I wish i would of took a few more pictures of the legs and how they fold. Two legs are connected at the top with a 3 or 4 in wide board and this folds on a set of hinges. Then when it folds out i got a long hardwood 3/8 thick strap that is spring loaded and it locks into a little rabbit on the board connecting legs. So when you open the legs it locks on its own then to close you pull up on the strap out of the groove and fold them down. I hope that makes since like i said i should of took a better set of pictures. and excuse the mess i got 15 projects going on including building a 53 Chevy truck. The main board for the table is 3/4 oak ply cut into the octagon. Then each corner is drilled with a hole saw and aluminum cup holders will be placed. (i found on amazon for around 6 bucks each). The trim around the out side is solid oak with a dado cut about 1/8 deep just to make them fit tight and make for a stronger table. the center octagon has got a solid wood trim laid out making a boarder for the center piece to set in. The center is oak ply as well. One side has the wahoo game and on the edge 3/4 in wide and 3/8 deep i cut a dado so i could stretch my speed felt over a cotton mat on the opposite and staple down. then i placed trim over the dado hiding the staple held down with brass brads so they can be removed if the speed felt ever needs replaces. ( the speed felt was a amazon buy as well 35 bucks for 9 yards so i have extra enough for 2 more) I built a 8 sided wahoo in the main table then i put a little turned rod drilled into table on one side it sets flush on top but sticks down under the table so you can push up on it to pick up on the center piece so it can be removed or flipped. The legs are solid oak as well. It came out real nice I gave it to them on Christmas and they love it so i guess I did good. I think i have close to 40 hrs in it. If i rambled to much i am sorry. It came out so nice I wanted to give some details in case someone else wanted to do something like it. Thank you for checking it out and please let me know your thoughts or if you have questions.
