Stabilising the table and legs
Now flip the poker table upside down onto a surface that wont scratch the Veneer of the table. lay down a blanket if needed to protect the race track. Small scratches can be sanded out but its easier if you don’t have to.
Now you will need to determine where you want your legs. If your using folding table legs secure them far enough on each end to make the table sturdy. We used screw in wood legs and placed them evenly on four corners of the table.
Find where you want each leg making sure they are square and trace the bracket. Depending on how long the screw in the leg is you may want to drill a small hole into the table so that the leg will fin into the secured bracket. If there is a correct outer side to the leg, such as square legs. you will want to first secure the bracket to the leg then place the bracket on the wood and mark what side is facing out. Then take it off the leg and screw it into the poker table. Attach the leg to the bracket and the leg should finish screwing in the correct direction.
Depending on the type of wood you use you may not need to prevent warping later. We wanted to be safe so we secured two steal “L” beams to the bottom. First Drill three holes in the beam. make sure they are in locations that when they go through the table they come up in the middle under the playing surface. Then drill holes through the table NOT THE VANEER. put a bolt through the first one so the other holes will line up later. After you have made your holes remove the legs and flip the table back right-side-up and counter sink the heads of your bolts so that they do not get in the way of the playing surface laying flush. Finish bolting the beams to the poker table.
