Default Hole Card Cams

Found this yesterday. Seriously considering a retro fit. This is much more affordable, although much less automated, than the RFID table from Australia. I already have some of the materials needed.

Well, I decided to do this as a COVID project. I ordered the cameras and some of the wiring needs from AliExpress. Basically got them half-price than from Amazon, just had to wait for the slow-boat-from-China to get here. No biggie since I don't have a timeframe yet on being able to resume my tournaments.

The construction of the table is complete. Here are some pics.

Original table:

Laying out camera placement:
Table2.jpg

Initial wiring:
Table3.jpg

Initial video test:
Table4.jpg

Raising the rail - due to the design of the original table, this proved to be one of the most difficult parts. Cutting out these blocks was a PITA. I needed about 25 of them and using a jigsaw on something that was basically 2"x3" was a non-starter. I asked a couple locals if anyone had a band saw but no luck. My step bro and Quads both suggested using the table saw, but it took a while to sink in what they both meant by it (using it dado style rather than as a rip cut). After that, it was pretty simple. So a shout out to Quads for getting my brain to engage.

Added weather stripping to fill in the gaps due to minor variances in the block size and the rail (yes, the blocks are numbered to ensure they stayed where they were fit to):

Table16.jpg

This is where I deviated from the original plans. I have a wifey that dabbles in scrapbooking and has an entire bedroom filled with that crap. So I decided to make use of it and add graphics to my raised railing.

Initial graphics layout:
Table17.jpg

Doing the rest of the graphics:
Table18.jpg

Final test fit:

Construction complete:

Now I need to finish wiring up the DVR and determine how I want to mount/store that. I also have a couple of overhead cameras I will mount to my drop ceiling to pick up the action on the table/board cards/etc.
