Hello everyone. I am new to this forum and love all the information you guys share, so I thought I would do some sharing as well. I made a table that converts from a poker table into a formal dining table, which is how I got my wife to agree to keep a poker table in the dining room. Some info: Seats 8 comfortably and 12 not as comfortably. Velveteen open cell foam padded center. Cabinet grade ply raceway for stacking chips very high. Closed cell foam bumper covered in vinyl. Multiple width Aluminum cup holders that accommodate beer cans and bottles, high ball and wine glasses. My wife wanted the pedastal leg design which is very stable as it is holding essentially two tables of weight. Dining table top is getting some final coats of polyurethane in the garage. I have never made a table before so this was a special feat for me.
