I asked the same question of the last dude that put a craps table build out there. Schulzpaul, you may want to check out that thread for some other build ideas. His table was very rudimentary at first, but it ended up pretty kickass. I remember he had a fire, and I think he lost the house, but was able to salvage the craps table. And he bought a new house with a pole barn for his craps games, IIRC.That is a sweet build, but there is one thing I always wonder when I see craps builds. Do you play a "home game" of craps against your buddies where you are the bank? I can't really see this working for my poker group as the beauty of a no rake home poker game is the every man for himself concept. Not knocking the build or the idea, just wondering how people do it. If I had one I think it would just sit there, look cool and do nothing.
If you look a few posts before this one you'll see the corners without any veneer on them. We took a 2 x 6 and cut out two arcs that matched our radius. With those arcs we created a top and bottom. Then we cut an extra 2 x 12 we had laying around into 1" strips. We then cut those to the proper length (I think 8.5"). The strips went in their vertically as you can see in the picture. Using the top two arc pieces we were able to glue all of them together. It looks trashy and it is, but once we have it completely covered (veneer on one side and a bumper on the other side) you will not see our corners and they are strong enough to support the weight of someone leaning on them or against them!Wondering if u had more detailed about how u did the corners and how go about cuttin them
