I bought the 8 Upgraded kit and I m glad I did This is the second table I ve built The first I tried with materials from local fabric stores and the quality wasn t as good as what I bought on this site It cost more too I built a 4×6 table to fit in the basement I had extra 1 foam for the padded rail so I doubled it up Put the cut pieces underneath and then the solid piece on top It s so cush The only problem was stretching the vinyl It was pretty tight on the sides I used 3 4 Oak for the race track and custom tinted stain for the color I tried to match the color of the chairs which is from my old kitchen table along with the pedistal My wife was shocked when she asked if we could get a new kitchen set and I said yes I ve been eyeing that pedistal for months I put about 8 hours into cutting the wood and upolstering and another 5 hours into staining applying sanding sealer and varnishing the race track I m extremely happy with the way it came out The stain matches the chairs better than what the pictures show The only thing left to do is have a game and figure out if I want 6 or 8 cup holders in it My friends are big don t want to squeeze them in on an 8 person table if it just isn t going to work Thanks BYOPT for the plans and materials If anyone has questions just ask
