I am black poker table Australia, so these table tops would cost me a small fortune to ship from the USA, so I decided to build my own. The following poker table plans on how to build a poker table should be used as a guide only.
These poker table plans are copyright and can not be used on any other site without written authorization. You will learn how to build a custom poker table using poker table felt and other poker table supplies. A few searches later, I had seen about 10 other home built tables. I decided to build the rounded rectangle, the biggest table I could.
I intended to build a table top only, one that I could store on its side in the garage when not in use, but could slot straight over the top of my dining table on game nights. I also chose to build my table with an exposed wooden section, which I call the “beer rail”. You could build this project without the “beer rail” in a single day. There were 3 main stores I needed to visit for this project, a hardware store, a fabric store, and a foam supplier.
I sourced the following building materials, fabric and foam, please note at the end of the project I discovered it may have been easier with slightly different measurements etc so read the final thoughts section for more info. I am going to build a “beer rail” so I started with a top sheet of ply wood. I started with a 1200mm wide sheet so I came in 600mm from the side and the ends to find the midpoint for my oval arc. I put a screw in at this point which I tied a string to. You can see one edge at the back is already cut off. After cutting the curves off, I placed the top “template” over the bottom sheet of MDF.
I traced around the table to make the peices fit evenly. Cut the 4 corners off the bottom sheet of MDF. You can also see in this picture that I have drawn two inner arcs. These are for the beer rail and the padded arm rail. Which leaves me with a 700mm wide felt covered playing area. I have moved the bottom sheet of MDF to the side, its job is done until the final stage of my table. I have made ONE cut with the jigsaw to seperate the PADDED RAIL section.
