Foldaway Mini Gaming Table
Although my attention is very much focused on getting my Salute mini finished this weekend (like that’s going to happen!), I’ve been meaning to make a post about the awesome game table my Dad built for me and delivered recently.
He’s a cabinet maker by trade and so I asked him if he might be able to craft some sort of small modular gaming table frame so I could play small skirmish games on it, yet fold it away when it’s not in use.
After some discussions on a suitable design, here’s what he built me:
Pictures aren’t great I’m afraid but I think you can get the idea. The first pic is the frame itself, and now in the second you can see it with four 12″ mdf boards laid out on it.
It’s about coffee table height so I think it’ll be perfectly playable from the sofa. Nice.
Coincidentally, Secret Weapon Miniatures have just announced a Kickstarter for a series of moulded 12″ base plates. How timely. They’re pretty pricey and I wouldn’t need 16 of them (the entry level) but if they sell them individually then they could be perfect for my upcoming post apocalyptic Eden board.
Anyway, how lucky am I? Thanks Dad!
