Not that there’s anything wrong with her table, this just isn’t it.

This is my first project with some mahogany that I got. I ultimately want to make a dining room table and thought this would be a good starter table.

The construction is similar to the racetrack poker tables out there, but as a hexagon. I added the small gussets in the corners because of the cup holders. I needed enough meat there to cut out. But I think I like that overall shape of it. The playing surface is covered with 1/4” closed cell foam and black suited speed cloth.

I wasn’t sure what to do with the pedestal. I thought I would stick with the hexagon theme and cut the pieces at 15 degrees each to end up with a 12 sided pedestal. The bottom is pretty simple as well.

Thanks for looking,

Thanks for the nice comments. I probably should have added that I used tung oil for the finish and poly on top.
