Hi all

Some of you may know me from the contractor talk forums. Wood working is a hobby of mine and I wish I had more time to persue it. I have some projects I have pics of I'll post when time allows.

Looking forward to sharing tips and info. I'm about to build some lawn furniture as soon as I finish a few other projects around the house.

Here we go a domino table. It's made of a birch plywood base, pine bumpers and chip holders and a raised granite playing surface...

Here we go a poker table...

Made of the same plywood base, pine bumpers. This time the playing top is MDF wrapped tightly in stain resistant pool table felt. LOL the felt cost more than the wood.

Nice tables, and welcome, Grumpy.

My wife is confused - she calls me grumpy. I'll have to tell her, "that's another guy".

Welcome to the forum Grumpy,
Tables look nice. Now I see why you don't have enough time for the woodworking, too busy playing poker and dominoes.

Did you use standard card table legs for this.?

It looks great. I am considering making a table myself.
I also am looking at having a jig made so I can drill the dots and machine the v-groove on the dominoes. I love playing 42 and I want to make my own set. The jigs I have seen don't suit what I want to make.

Tools are like guns, You can never have enough.
Where did I put that tape measure???

Sorry, but i think Grumpy has left the building

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Hello from Jacob, LONDON,

I have been a guest here for some time and finally joined, I hope that's alright. It's been great to be with you all. This a fantastic resource for techs in general. Even if those who visit do not fix emergency apparatus, I know there is a better understanding of how things work and of course the three Ds. DO's DONT's and DONTEVER's.

Stay Safe.

Jacob.

Sorry for my absence. I've been so busy with real life and being a father and husband that my workshop has turned into a storage room. I'm left with zero time to persue my hobbies anymore.

But once I get that workshop cleaned out I am going to be building a custom bar for the basement. I've got a few other ideas as well. I'm full of ideas, short on time.

Both tables are actually sized to fit directly atop a foldable card table. I consider them prototypes since if I remake them I plan to make them lighter. One way of doing this is by reducing their size, there is alot of wasted space on the domino table, but that space was necessary so it'd fit over the card table.

If I can get some collapsable legs and screw them directly on, I can lose some inches from the domino table. LOL The granite doesn't help either.

Hi Grumpy... Do you know Carom board repairing? It's a nice board to play. But while we were playing it was damaged. Striker is not moving properly on it. So i just need your suggestion... Hope i can get needed information in further posts.
