The person at work that I built the first Poker Table for had a bunch of friends over for a game and one person like the table so much that he had to have one. He chose the blue the blue cloth and stainless steel cup holders. The outside is the same as the first, Cherry was used for the frame and it was finished with BLO, sprayed poly, and then rubbed out with paste wax. Personally, I like this one better than the black with brass pictured in the last picture.

Thanks for looking.

I liked the black one when I first saw it, and still do. But, I like the blue and the stainless steel a lot better.
I wish I had the room for something like this.
Great job.

Nice job I have one as well, did minein red. I kinda like the blue as well. My game room is black & silver ( Raiders colors ),,, I know,,, some of the fans are bone heads! So the black would be nice as well. I need to change my felt soon, as its getting a little worn.

I put in the Stainless cup holders as well. But one thing I found out if you take them out, and pour a beer off my keg system pint glasses sit in the holes perfectly. About 3/4 of the way down. So we barley use the holders unless someone is drinking mix drinks.

I like the thickness look on yours as well. Great work.

The blue definately does justice to the wood.

Deke – My Miter saw is dead on for the 22.5 angle so it is not very hard for me to get the joints tight.

Bigrock – I did some research online (pictures) for plans and ended up just drawing part of it in Sketchup. For the final plan and the cup holders and cloth were purchased at

thanks for looking
