Craps Table Plans

Post by erie_monster » Wed Nov 12, 2014 7:08 am

It has been a while since I have been here but back in 2010 I downloaded some PDF plans for a craps table. Well several years and several PC's later I cannot find them. Found a link on here in the archives that directed me to crapsfest but when I got there it displayed "Module not Active" or something to that effect. Heavy can ya help a brother out here?
Thanks...

Yeah, the craps table plans were in a section of the old crapsfest site that got hacked and gobbled up. I'll noodle around my hard drive and see if I have a copy somewhere. If I can find them I'll upload them somewhere so you can find them and let you know.

I built my first table off these plans. It was spot on perfect. The only thing that you may want to verify is the sidewall height. As I remember the overall height off the deck to the top of the chiprail is + or - 1" taller than most casino tables.

Yes I remember you posting some pics of that. That was a few years ago. Just wondering... did you actually use "furniture grade plywood" for this or can I get away with something a little more economical. Also I have seen some layouts on ebay, are these the same material as used in casino's? I watched the change a layout at Cleveland Horseshoe and there was a white material they layed down first which looked like flannel..

any advice appreciated...

I actually used that real dense 3/4" particle board from Home Depot as a core. I then used 3/8" O.S.B. (Oriented Strand Board) glued and screwed to each face. I staggered the joints for strength and for a real hard, smooth surface I veneared a real thin layer of masonite to one face. I had two reasons for trying this. First to save money but mainly to start with a very stable core. Particle Board (MDF) comes out very flat and uniform. When veneared and protected from the elements it's great stuff.

I've since used two layers of the +/- $42.00 3/4" multi-ply plywood glued and screwed with staggered joints and I feel it's just as stable. The plywood sold here in Southern California is near to cabinet grade with a great number of plies. I highly recommend you DON'T try to use 3/4" subfloor material of any kind.

As for a layout you have a few options... Spinetti's online has a number of new and used layouts of all different sizes. They also advertise on Ebay which is another great option. If you look up gambling supplies on the web you'll come across a number of businesses that sell layouts.

Have fun building your table!

Another option for the layout would be a custom design. It can be made to any size to fit your table. See this thread:

This would depend on pricing. I am looking at something on Ebay http://www.ebay.com/itm/110939013688.
Would this be Comparable? This layout doesn't include fire or hop bets that I can see....

I have a similar layout to that one. It's 8', single layout. I bought it about a year ago and used it for a while but I longed for the fire, hop and ATS bets so I could easily practice using the full range of bets available in the live casino. That's when I started creating my own. The printing process and fabric they use are very similar to what I can do. The cost for one of my tailored custom layouts is about double what they charge for their standard layouts. It's not a business for me. Just a capability I share on the forum should any others think the value of a custom layout is worth the price.
