Hi folks. Does anyone know of any Canadian-made board gaming tables, such as those made by geekchic, boardgametables, or geeknson? I'm not concerned where it's made per se. It's the shipping, exchange rate, duty, and taxes that make non-domestic tables a problem. Thanks.

I suspect any cabinet/furniture maker or decent carpenter will be able to help you out. They are not that complicated to build.

I'm sad there haven't been more answers to this! I've been unsuccessfully looking too. Are there no Canadian companies that make board game tables similar to boardgametables.com?

You're in luck. We have a gentleman coming to our upcoming Breakout convention in Toronto (https://breakoutcon.com/) who has started a new business doing custom gaming tables. He was at last year's CastleCon, where he had one of his tables on display and in use throughout the con. We're providing the same opportunity at Breakout and I believe he's also going to have a booth.

Unfortunately, I don't have his website, as he mentioned that he was re-doing it. As soon as I have more info, I'll post it here.

Hello,

You can check https://www.rathskellers.com/.

Handcrafted in Greece, offering great shipping rates to Canada and America.

One thing you need to know : When ordering from a European Manufacturer from outside the EU you are not charged Vat (20-24%) in Europe. So most of the times it is cheaper for customers outside the EU to order a table, product & etc even if shipping is somewhat more expensive than for Customers inside the EU.

Alright, I have the information now. The business is McFadden Board Game Tables (http://mcfaddentables.ca/) and they were on site for the Breakout convention. The owner, Bob McFadden, is very personable and can be reached at info@mcfaddentables.ca. Also, he's based out of Kingston, ON, so you'd be supporting a local craftsman.

Here's a shot of one of his tables in use at Breakout with Bob standing behind it.

BoardGameTables.com can ship to Canada. For most addresses it adds $50 to the shipping cost, $113 customs broker fee, and 5% import tax. Alternatively, we can have the table held at a distribution center in the US for you to pick it up.

Can I ask if you got a table and how you went about it from Rob?

I have heard of him but his page is gone so I assume he is taking a break or he is done making tables
