Default 4' Round Table for a Friend

I had a bunch of leftover or unused materials from various poker table builds, enough to put together a small 4' round table on the cheap for a friend of mine. Not a lot of round build threads so I took a few pictures as I started the build this week:

Outside cut:


Finishing up the outside cut (new exhaust window fan pictured in the background):


Inside rail cutsL


Reclaimed pedestal I purchased a while back off craiglist for like $10:



More to come in the coming weeks.

Nice looking forward to more build pics. Are you refinishing the ped?

Probably not, despite looking filthy and being covered in dust its in really good shape, just a couple of small white marks down near the feet. I believe the SSC I have for it is bronze, so the color should match really well.

So I have seen a few pedestal tables for sale on the cheap on CL. How do you detach the base from the table top to reuse it? And is there a way to make the pedestal base detachable from the new poker table top you are making so it can be more easily stored away???

Yes - there are typically 4 hanger bolts drilled into the top of each pedestal - you can use those to bolt a small sheet of plywood to the top of the pedestal (see pedestal pic above). Then you use that sheet of plywood like a connection plate, bolting that to the underside of the table with t-nuts or threaded inserts. I'll take some pictures when I get to that part to illustrate.

On my table I had to drill four holes in the table base for the bolts to fit up into. Basically, like pockets so the top would sit flush with the plywood "go between" piece. The go between is like the meat between the bread of the table and pedestal.

So the four hanger bolts attach the pedestal to the plywood go between.

Then the plywood peice can have holes drilled in it to accept bolts that go into t-nuts in the table.

I'm sure Irish will document it well with the pics.

Thanks for replies and would appreciate a pictorial walk-through of this.

On a separate note: what is the accepted size of a round table that would comfortably seat 6 but could stretch to a tight-fitting 8? Assume 48" would be too small? Don't want to go 60 so would 54" work???

There's a calculator somewhere for player room on the different size tables.

48" round would fit 6 comfortably. Anything more and that's going to be quite tight.

I built mine at 54" and it was fine for 8.

48 is the magic number.
Fitting 8 around it will be tough though. However going to 60" makes the table a PITA to deal, rake / push pots, it's almost too big for it's size (round). I don't know about 54.
