I thought I would give this project a whirl when I ran upon the BYOPT website while surfing in Pinterest I had an old kitchen table in my basement that I was getting ready to throw away and thought it might be fun to transform it into a poker table for my son who likes to host poker night when he is home from college I think it s important to tell you that I am a single mom who has NEVER done any wood working before I did this entire project on my own so don t be deterred if you think it looks too hard to do alone the plans are so simple I emailed with Chris at BYOPT and decided to order one of their kits I am so glad I did It made this project so easy I did most of the work on the table in one day The chairs took me a bit longer to do I am thrilled with the final outcome in spite of a few mistakes along the way Can t wait for my son to get home for spring break and host his first game Maybe mom can get in on a hand or two as my reward for knocking this out of the park Ha
