Forward Removable Table

One of the first things I noticed about my Vegas was the "small" table we can use between the Captains Chairs was not exactly user-friendly---both in weight and functionality. My biggest fear, other then pulling my back lifting it, was that it was very easy to spill a drink. And that's the last thing I want to do with carpet and electronics up forward.

Did a little investigating and experimenting and installed some casino chips cups in holes I cut in the table. Was okay but I still did not like the bulkiness of the table. As you can see the cups will hold standard water bottles and soda cans.

Had a 18 inch diameter table top left over from a project from 20 years ago. Sanded it, burned top with Japanese burning wood method, and added 3 coats of Wipe on Poly between sandings. Cut holes in the table top, put in the chip cups (from above), and using exising table top hardware I have a table I like.

If I find this is not big enough for us then I have a 24-inch top I can work with.

Can get Ponderosa Pine Panels from Home Depot as well as the Wipe on Poly. Cups came Discount Casino Supplies.

Time: 5 hours Money: $36.00

Like the lighter color of your table and the angle cuts on the backend.

Got some cypress wood I'll be milling and giving a light Japanese woodburning treatment when I make the new dining table. In the interm I'm installing cupholders in the factory table.
