Poker Table

author-gravatar turnerswoodworking Dec 30, 2018

This was a poker table for a friend. The top is made of walnut and oak with red speed cloth for the playing surface. The base is an pack and walnut knockdown trestle table design inspired by The Wood Whisperer. The top also features 10 drop in cup holders.

Test fitting the playing surface. MDF wrapped with red speed cloth.

Ready for finish!!

Fitting the wedges for the knockdown trestle base.

Using mineral spirits to find any defects prior to finishing 

First coat of Seal Coat Shellac. I love this as a base coat!!

Final test fitting after 3 coats of General Finishes Arm-R-Seal gloss. 

Delivered to a happy customer who happens to be a great friend and mentor.
