Well its done! Turned out really well . The rails were near perfect. Only mistake was a side pocket cushion facing didn't get trimmed quite enough. It sticks up under the cloth a little. The 1/4 facing are a little harder to work with.

The bed cloth turned out really good. It's all nice and tight, the pocket stretches are all perfect. I can see curves in the weave of the cloth in spots. But I'll learn from it and do better next time. Its not to bad but noticable.

The pockets are definitely tighter. Can't get two balls into the jaws of the corners. They are about 4 1/4". The sides are also much tighter...about 4 1/2".

Now the bad... somehow a stray drop of glue got on the cloth, and I didn't notice it in time to get it cleaned off properly. I cleaned it off with acetone and the glue is gone but left a stain. That really PISSED ME OFF! But it might fade over time. I'll have to live with it.

But it really plays good. A lot more action. But the pockets are harder. Just what I wanted.

Oh... and Glen, I took your advice took the time to clean as much glue off that I could. Much cleaner job.

Thanks. All the cushion nose heights are spot on now...plays like it should. It will do for a garage table.
