This is a race track style table with an oak race track and legs I m not very good at keeping cost down I have about 600 00 in this table On my first table I used 3 4 foam and I could fell the edges when I lean my elbows on the table To combat this I used a router to round the edge on the rail before adding the 1 4 high foam now being sold on this site it worked great One table one I used 1 2 plywood for a base and there is a little flex One table two I used 3 4 BC and wrapped it with oak veneer I m pretty happy with this table however I will not get to use it It has a new owner I look forward to 3
