This is the first time I have built anything with these materials This was a project me and my father did together and was a lot of fun spending time with him on this build Before anything else I want to mention the exceptional customer service The speed cloth I ordered had a small defect I sent pictures of the area and was sent new cloth within a couple days and was not charged shipping again The plans are very easy to follow and more importantly understand I opted for the upgraded materials and highly recommend them as they were easy to work with and I am more than happy with the end result I used the platinum speed cloth high density foam for under the playing surface and premium rogue vinyl for the rails with the 1 foam cushion I have requests to build more for friends It only takes one build to know how you can improve on your future builds I am definitely referring everyone to this site and look forward to building more from this site Thank you
