This Poker Tabletop clock is a fun accent piece that should fit into quite a few different rooms in any home. This Poker Tabletop clock would look great in a game room, a family room, the basement reck room, or even in an industrial loft. This would also be fun in an office of a business that sells poker related products! Have fun changing out the colors and you can create a unique Poker Tabletop clock piece that will have everyone looking.
To Make a Clock Out of a Poker Tabletop You Will Need:
One Poker Tabletop
Sheet of Plywood, pine wood, or even birch)
Wooden Numbers or Deck of Cards
Battery (Probably AA)
Now, I bought a poker table top, the kind that folds open. It came with a Blackjack poker tabletop insert that was almost exactly the same size as my poker table top. I rarely play blackjack, so Decided to make something out of this extra poker table top. You can buy these poker table tops for about $30 at Bed Bath and Beyond, so this is still an affordable project even if you have to start from scratch.
Drill a small hole in the middle of the Poker Tabletop. This will be for your clock kit, so you may want to take a look at that and see if there are any size recondition for this small hole. You don’t have to center the clock face; you could offset it for some visual interest.
Now, you are ready to install your clock kit on the Poker Tabletop. Follow the direction on the clock kit box. Each kit will be slightly different. I find clock kits at the hardware store, the home improvement store, and almost every single arts and craft store out there. I recommend a clock kit that runs on a battery so that you do not have to have a cord hanging out of the back of the tire, but that is complexly up to you.
Now, some clock kits will come with numbers, but you may find that they are too small for this Poker Tabletop project. You can use these great wooden numbers sold at the arts and craft store for this if you want. I like to paint them out in yellow, or a contrasting color that will really show on the green poker table top, glue them on and really make this look great!
You could also buy wooden cut out in the shape of card suits. Diamonds, heart, spades and clubs are what I am talking about. Go ahead and paint them out in their correct colors. When they dry you can glue on some smaller wooden cutout numbers. Paint these in all the same color like whit or yellow to tie the piece together.
Pop a battery into your clock kit and you can now hang your Poker Tabletop clock on the wall. If you are hanging it in an office why nothing it where everyone will see it! This will be a really conversation starter with poker guests and family members alike!
Just remember, you can make this Poker Tabletop clock with any sized Poker Tabletop!
