In relation to the optional cup holders. In the first poll we offered a sliding in and out cup holders version from beneath the table. Another option could be to have a stylish grooved rail line on the side edge of table which would not only cater for moveable cup holders but also for optional trays and accessories.

Would you prefer to have this stylish grooved rail system on the outer rail (side view of table)?
(reason for this question is just that im worried with the occasional knock the sliding in/out system may get over time and therefore may need future repairs/replacing)
  Your Answer   Vote Percent Vote Count
Yes, i prefer the grooved rail system (refer to photo)
72.5% 66
No, i prefer the sliding in/out option better still

Lastly, at the bottom of the coffee table, the bottom shelf, to make this useful for storage and a more tidy appearance, we could offer a hidden storage area under the bottom shelf, so you can store some games.

How would you prefer this to look? (just worried that the look of the hinge system may cheapen the look of the coffee table)
  Your Answer   Vote Percent Vote Count
With a 2 leaf system pop up shelf (easy to lift up 1 half piece shelf)
58.5% 31
I prefer a hinge system in the middle (refer to photo)

Just to add as it wasn't a question, I personally would prefer to not have a shelf of any sort at the bottom, I really really dislike sitting at tables where I can't relax and put my legs/feet under the table.

If it could come in a shelf-less variant would definitely buy one of these if shipping to CHCH NZ isn't too bad. The only reason I haven't bought a nice gaming table is purely because they all seem to come from overseas which more than doubles the price when adding in shipping/delivery.

looks great!

Cheers
