I had some extra 1/8" rubber sub-flooring material left over from a job, so I used this on the playing surface. It turned out to be ideal; there is only a slight rise between the racetrack and playing surface, and you can shuffle the chips on the playing surface. It gives just enough to do that. Buttons designate each player position.
I made the legs with a four-toed griffin paw design.
Brass cup inserts not shown. I know I could've made the cupholders and chip drawer slide directly underneath the base by cutting slots into the skirt. But I built the skirt first, then decided to add the other items. I wanted to keep the skirt intact, so I had to figure out how to get around it. The lower lip of the skirt supports the cupholders and drawer assembly.
Chip/card drawer fully stocked. The chip drawer has inner and outer bearings, in order to minimize wobble during opening and closing. I wanted the drawer to be parallel to the base as it moved inward and outward. This didn't completely eliminate wobbling, but it took away a large portion of the problem. I was limited by space in how to configure the bearing mechanism. If I had more space between the cupholders and drawer, I think I could have come up with a design to completely eliminate wobbling.
The card drawer has spaces for two colored decks; bridge and poker sizes.
