Here's how we got started.
Hello, and welcome to our Web site. I hope the information below will help you understand where we come from and what Custom Poker Cloths is all about. Custom Poker Cloths is a Division of Regal Custom Woodworking. We are located about 25 miles southeast of Des Moines, Iowa in the small town of Pleasantville, Iowa.
In 2000, I decided to start a Custom Woodworking business. I had been working in the Engineering field for over 15 years. With this new business venture I began working on many projects that required me to build furniture from scratch to match existing furniture and woodwork that my customers already had in their homes. I had been a woodworker for many years and always found the challenge of building things from wood fascinating. I found myself building more and more items for my customers such as Kitchen cabinets, and very large built in entertainment centers in family rooms, master bedrooms, and recreation rooms.
Late in 2003, a friend approached me with the idea of building him a poker table. He brought a few pictures of what he was wanting from some magazines and wanted me to look at building his table for him. I have played poker for years but never really thought of building a table before. So like all projects that I work on, I started doing research on the internet to see what was out there. What I found was that all of the tables were either cheaply built or cheap and over priced. I looked at literally hundreds of tables before I came to the conclusion that I needed to design and build a table that was priced reasonably, but at the same time could be place in even the finest game rooms around the world. After looking at all the information I had gathered, I designed and built the poker table that was requested of me. My friend was amazed and very pleased with how nice the table was. He suggested that I build a few to place in local stores for all to see. The response was amazing to the tables. About a year and a half later I started the web site to support our local customers who saw us at local Home shows. Once the web site was finished I started getting calls from all over the world requesting information about my tables. When orders started flowing in from the web site I was forced to build an even larger wood shop to accommodate the new business. We are still expanding with new avenues and the web site has been changing with the business. Each day we seem to find new challenges in this business venture.
In January 2007 we purchased Regal Poker Tables. We moved all the Regal Poker Tables shop and facilities to our current location In Iowa. We felt that the two businesses would fit perfectly together. That year brought some interesting challenges. The purchase has allowed me to expand in ways I could only dream about. I am constantly adding new products to the web sites.
I enjoy talking to the new client and look forward to hearing from you about designing your Custom Poker Table. I treat each customer like they are my first and the excitement of seeing your designs come to life is as enjoyable today as it was on the very first custom poker tables I built.
Give me a call or send me an email and we can make your ideas and dreams a reality.
