Thanks for the compliments Rainman!! That table has a LED back-lit raised rail. Its a strip of stainless steel with custom cut letters / logos. Behind that is a strip of translucent white so the LED light comes through. LED also changes colors to anything you want, and flashes, fades, and strobes.....but that's a little too much for a poker game....lol

Are these custom orders for clients , or do you build them and advertise them?
Also wondering if you do the upholstery. I’m assuming the holes around the perimeter are drink holders . I don’t gamble so I don’t know much about this . Watched James Bond gamble a few times on tv,that was it

All custom made to order. I've been building them for the last 13 years and have over 350 built.....and yes I upholster every one......and don't feel bad...I don't gamble either! lol

Nice work, but whatever happened to the type of poker tables in the John Wayne movies?

I take it you're doing some work for casino customers? Really nice tables. I guess poker turned into a TV and regional "sport" at one point. Kindly tell me a little more about your business. I've spent my life as a business consultant and love to hear details of specialty businesses.

Hi DesertRatTom - I just kind of fell into it. I've always been a woodworker and build things for friends and family simply because I liked woodworking. One day someone asked me to make a poker table. I made it, and it was ok. For people wo know me, "ok" just doesn't cut it. So I made another one (better) and sold it. I think you see where this is going. Before long I made a website and kept at it. So I turned my hobby into a business. My clientele is primarily home owners who like to have a friendly home game, but I also have my fair share of the hustlers who run underground games. I've also made a few tables for professional WSOP players. My business is local.....as far as someone is willing drive to pick up, or as far as someone is willing to pay for me to deliver. I cannot ship because freight is ridiculous and also requires a custom crate to be made. As far as my shop goes....just working out of a one car garage. That's about all I got! Not an impressive story, but it is what it is!

Frank, I'll bet that one car garage is pack when you are working on those larger tables.

I used to a lot of work in the garage, but over the years I've been slowly pushed out due to storage issues. My one car garage is now basically like a giant toolbox. No actual space to work for such large projects like my tables. Now I do all my work in my driveway, under a pop-up. One day I plan to build an oversized shed.......one day.

What will the HOA allow you to build? I know a lot of them will not approve additions to the house and will not allow storage sheds or extra buildings.
