I'm almost done making my table. I'm stuck though since my carpenter can't finish the project. Do you guys have any designs for an affordable wooden table legs? The one i've installed swings to and fro and so i have to redo it. Here's the almost done table



Also I have a china poker speed cloth and I wanted to put a betting line in it through silk screen printing. Will it work?

You should look on the 'Build a Poker Table' page. There are almost 100 plans on that page and many of those plans contain instructions on how to build legs.

Good luck, nutn

You might want to find an old dining table at goodwill and use those.  They will be
 stable and it won't cost much.  Not sure about the betting ring.  If you can find a vendor to do the screening that's great

Thanks for the reply guys. I think i'll follow this plan http://www.buildyourownpokertables.com/step-7-table-legs

Still looking for how to put a betting line on the poker cloth though.

What would be the ideal measurement from the rail? I did some tests and 8" or 9" seems good but still not sure though

I wouldn't bother with a betting line. Betting lines are meaningless - it's the forward motion that matters. Dealt cards can also get snagged on fraying graphics like a betting line. The card hits an uplifted chunk of printed material and is exposed. But anyone who does silk-screen printing can do it - but once again, I doubt if many printers have experience printing on speed cloth.

Good luck, nutn

I agree with this.

If you must have a betting line (I get that some people want it for looks, even if it is meaningless), you're best off to go with a dye-sublimated cloth...  That won't be China-cheap, tho.

These legs from your linked site are basic and look sturdy, but myself, I prefer legs and can be removed or folded up.  My poker room is not a permanent poker room.

EDIT:  By the way, nice job on the rail.
