This was my first poker table and I learned a lot of techniques while working on it. I also learned some limitations with a router (broke a 1/2” straight bit by not clamping the work peice well enough, the vibrations were too great). The guy I built it for is going to buy a pedistal locally. The rails are european walnut with peduk accents

That has to be the best looking poker table top I’ve seen here on LJs. The padauk accents are killer. btw, nice to see one that not an octagon, ( never been in an eight man poker game), still waiting to see a heptagon shaped table.

The table looks great! I sure do miss working with the great wood that is available to you in Italy. When I ran the Arts and Crafts shop in Vicenza I built a wine rack out of some oak that had come from France. I later donated it for a charity auction and it was a big hit because of the wood not the design.
Keep up the great work and enjoy a great bottle of vino for me. Ciao
