Thanks Herb! I have a regular 9 to 5 job, so I normally save my poker table building for the weekends....so it usually take me about 4 weekends to build one table. I currently have 5 tables in que, so I've been working every night after work as well as weekends......I guess that's a good problem to have.

Things like this always remind me of a buddy in Thailand. He ordered a custom made poker table (round, John Wayne would have loved it), with a removable dining table top. He got a lovely table, all teak, lovely green felt, lovely table top. Only one glitch. The dining table was on the bottom, with the poker table on top; so he wound up having to find a place to store the poker top the majority of the time. Strangely, everyone who saw it thought it was very funny, except for him. His wife was Thai, and did the translating for him when he ordered it built, wonder if that had anything to do with the problem.

That is funny, Theo., Do the Thai people sit on the floor to do things like a lot of Asian people do?

You can make one a month? WOW, it would take me a year or more to even come close,and it wouldn't be as good as yours.

It has been goodly while since I was there, transferred in 1974, spent a month in 1977, a lot did work on the floor, but that depended on what they were working on, a lot of the jobs that would be impossible. I would imagine things have changed in the cities, but I betcha that in the country they do things pretty much like they always have. All of the weavers I saw (not that many) sat on the floor, a lot of the carvers also, the furniture makers seemed to always stand, umbrella makers up or down depending on just what they were doing. At home the vast majority sat on the floor to eat. At the market place a lot of sellers also sat on the ground, with their goods in front of them; the sellers with booths sat on stools. Nice place, got along well with the people.

Maybe that table you cite was to gamble while sitting on the floor?
