    From the photos posted on Amazon, this looks like like a solidly constructed table -

    Especially with the 3 legs - the center support is a bonus -

    Also, it looks like there are 2 stick positions - which is also a bonus -

    Under $2K delivered is not shabby at all !

    Prior to purchase - I would endeavor to directly contact the MANUFACTURER and ascertain exactly HOW it is constructed -

    AND - how it breaks down and is assembled ! - THIS info is critical !


    Better tables have a double layer of quality / furniture grade 3/4 inch plywood as the base to which the felt is adhered to -

    Worse case scenario - the plywood / particle board base can be replaced with minimal charge by a local carpenter / handyman if it turns out to be sub-standard -

    I would give it a " Buy it Now " if I was looking for a quality table which had the options this one has !

    There is NOTHING like having your own practice table - IF - you have the room and the money to afford it !

    Best of Luck to You -

    And - " Go for it " !

    Big Ben - who is a member of this forum has a custom built table very similar to this one -

    He specifically requested TWO stick positions and eliminated the box position -

    He has one half of his table covered in traditional felt and the other half in microfiber -

    In this manner he can toss from either side of the table to practice on different casino layouts -

    THIS possibility exists with THIS table with simple and inexpensive modification !


    I built my own and is similar to Ben's - but not as pricey or ornate -two different under-layments on either end .

    I'd be real careful before I pulled the trigger on that table.
    Look at it VERY closely, lots of un-even parts, like the pads.
    Leads me to believe that if the pads aren't right, what else isn't right.
    I would also have them define "Quality Table"...
    What EXACTLY are the materials it is built with? Oak, common plywood, cabinet grade plywood?
    How thick is the actual Deck, and in how many pieces?

    You're better-off spending more, and have a table that'll last you forever.
    USA Gaming will build a great table, and to your specifications. (Oak and Cabinet Grade Plywood).
    IF you want to do it "right", then look for 1 1/2" thick one piece Deck (or you can have it split in the center), Cabinet Grade Plywood Deck, Oak the rest of the way, as well as what $nake mentioned above.

    Happy Table Hunting,
    BB

    One of the comments noted the HW prop bets are mislabeled ("10 to 1" for hard 6 & 8 and "8 to 1" for hard 4 & 10 are visible in one of the images).
