    I’m currently getting ready to make a new, 6 ft long practice table to test out betting strategies and practice my Dice Control. I’ll have a layer of vinyl on the table, on top of that felt then on top of that my craps layout I bought from Vegas Supply’s website. I’ll post photos of the progress of my new practice table as I go along. Here’s an image of the layout I’ll be using. 48492102-AD15-4833-8928-D8FF5C6F7DC5.jpeg

    Here’s a metal sign I’ll hang in the basement; that’s where I’m building my craps table. I had this sign custom made for me by an Etsy seller called Lizton Sign Shop Inc. 235A2552-B748-417F-868B-2DA08A0FA785.jpeg

    Anything less than 10 feet is a waste. At that size SR2 approximates SR1 at a casino 12 footer.

    You may notice small tubs get worn out by di’s and shot takers. Limited use for short practice tables. Betting practice? Avoid center bets. You are welcome,

    2 halfs of the table are identical.....you might consider, for 6 feet, only laying one half instead of the complete layout......i have to defer on the dice control aspect.

    The layout is missing several bets

    Here's my new 6ft practice craps table/den I setup in the basement. I used 1 layer of vinyl fabric and 1 layer of felt fabric underneath the craps layout; this is to replicate the bounce of a real craps table.

    Bottom line, as always, your home results (bounce characteristics) will not match any table you will ever play at. Abandon hope all ye who practice at home.

    i guess you can have a table with just bets you make or have an accurate presentation of what you will face in most casinos........hop bets...C&E...big 6 and 8....are bets you may not make, but are bets others would make........it's a nice layout, but if I was teaching the game I would have included all bets normally associated with a full layout..........but that's just me.
