Default Table build video - start to finish

I built another table last fall with a WSOP overrun felt I bought from the layoutcompany on ebay.

This time instead of pictures I went the video route.

So if you have 20 minutes to kill.... give it a watch

This was my fourth table build from scratch.

For the first time I used headliner instead of closed cell volara because the original stuff I bought got all creased up and ruined. I needed to finish the table quickly, and I was trying to keep the budget in check so I went to Joann's and got the headliner. Its definitely softer, but I think I might actually prefer it.

The felt is from thelayoutcompany on ebay. They have overrun and error casino felts for sale. Very happy with it and it wasn't that pricey compared to a custom cloth.

I tried the single sheet method with bracing underneath to save on weight. As I said above, I was going a cost saving route with this thing so I used cheaper sanded ply from Homes Despot. Even with the cheaper lighter ply and only a single sheet it turned out pretty rigid. Its way lighter than my other tables.

The place where the budget table really sinks though is the legs. If I remember correctly I got these from Lowes a long time ago for less than $30. They're night and day from the ones from metalkraft or other quality folding legs.

All in all, for a budget table trying a few new things I'm really happy with it.

Not sure how many more of these I'll build if any, not sure this old man can handle more rails.

I do not miss doing rails and I haven't done one in probably 10 years.
Nice work.

I always love your vids. Gave it a like and a comment to hopefully boost your visibility on the ol' YT algorithm.

When I did my first table (and only) I used a manual staple gun. Lets just say I had a similar reaction when I was finished.

Thanks all very much appreciated.

The rails get worse as I get older. Fingers and back were killing me and not really shown is the bloody thumbnail I got no idea how. I had to bandage up because I was dripping all over vinyl and wood.

Also, doing the outer edge of the rail on the bare cement was let’s say not brilliant.

Timsta I couldn’t imagine doing that with a manual stapler. F—- that no way.

Oh and two days after I finally posted this after building it in October, Adam Savage posts a table build video. So yeah his viewership is let’s say slightly larger than ol Richard.

Yeah, but his table is small and has no padding on the playing surface! Your table is better, but I do like that he explained a lot of his thinking.

Poor bastard ordered a pneumatic stapler but it was delayed shipping and he did all the upholstery with a manual same as I did. Warmed my heart to watch him sweat it out.
