I just posted a couple of pictures of a side table I made (one of two). You can see them here -

nfortunately, I have a couple extras, but I can't figure out how to delete them from the site. Oh well...
Happy holidays, hope your wildest wishes come true (you can share them here if you wish) -

Well, I actually only finished one, so far. The other is nearly finsihed, but it's ben a busy month. Does anyone have a good source for flanges? I had a friend weld one for me, but I would prefer a machined, threaded flange (1/2" or 5/8", preferably aluminum to keep the weight down). Thanks -

Hi Bill:

Very nice! I really like the wood trim and black top combination - it's very elegant, I think.

Thanks for sharing your work.

You might look in the electrical department at you local hardware store for aluminum threaded conduit flanges.
Our friends don't have to agree with me about everything and some that I hold very dear don't have to agree about anything, except where we are going to meet them for dinner.

Very nice! What type of fabric cover did you use?

Did you happen to build any features into it? (magnets, coin slots, etc)

Derek - No cool stuff built into this one, but I am thinking about another one, with coin and card holdouts, maybe built in magnet. I'll let yu know when I get that. The fabric is velvet over wool felt. I originally put headliner fabric on, but it was too cushy for me - I'm hoping I can find thinner headliner material, but I live in a small town and my options for material are few. Did you get your table built, as I read some of your earlier posts where you were inquiring into material? Merry Christmas -

There used to be a company here in town that made wet vests. Not sure if they are still around, but I had purchased non-backed Neoprene, and closed cell foam. This had the density of the old Mullica pads... much nicer density than headliner. The only difference was that the foam was about 3/8" thick. Not the best for a close-up pad (my intended use at the time), but it would have been great for surfacing a table.

Maybe something to keep an eye out for?

I'm sure you can still buy rolls of Neoprene online. Not cheap, but good stuff.

The wool felt is a good option. I have used rolled cotton batting for padding with good results. Just enough give to facilitate picking up cards and coins, but not enough spring to be annoying.
