Do you think it would be good to take a piece of wood and cover it in felt or some material? It wouldn't be as soft, but do you think it would work?

depends, a good close up pad is pretty cheap, but if you're bored and you have supplies around just find some nice material for the surface and put some sponge between the wood(or whatever) and material...

Yeah, that does work just fine, you can get felt easily at most office supply shops. I used that for a month or 2 until i finally got a close up pad.

I make my own close up pads for under 50 cents and get a nice looking pad. I was debating on putting out my book on it but i dont think I will

I have made my own pokertable so I think that it wouldn't be a big deal to make my own close up pad also.
I think that I would take 400 mm x 300 mm x 10 mm plywood and maby put some elevations to it's corners with screws and then I think that I would stain the whole thing (maby oak would be nice color) and lacquer it. Then I would take piece of foam 400 mm x 300 mm x 3-5 mm and glue it on the plywood with contact adhesive. Then I would take silk (600 mm x 500 mm)
grind it on the foam and turn the whole thing over and rivet it under the pad.

Yes I know that is not cleary explained and there might be some wrong words or bad grammar, but it is just that my english isn't good.

Ps. I might draw some plannings at the weekend if someone wants and tells me how I can link it here or then I could send it in e-mail.
