So I got into the board game hobby not to long ago and I got inspired by the different gaming tables out there. I use to be into woodworking back in High School, and I thought that this would be the motivation to get a wood shop setup. Nothing like hobbies combining to build on each other.
I found this solid oak table at Goodwill and was going to add some rails and accessories to it, but it also makes a great work bench so dedicating to gaming only seemed like a waste.
I first started with creating a frame around the table and attaching a sheet of plywood that was cut in half, which was then stained and coated with polyurethane.
I decided to go with 3 mm neoprene which I cut to size for the Table Top and it was a great decision.
Then I created a rail system in 4 parts that fits around the sides snugly
For accessories, I added fold down cup holders and strip LED lighting to the top and bottom (why? why not!)
I thought the table was a little too big but then I plopped down the extended Scythe board and laid out Mechs vs Minions and now I am happy with the size
Mechs vs Minions
Because of this project, I got to get back into wood working, get a lot of new toys, uh I mean tools, tackle a lot of projects around the house and have an awesome table to gather around with friends and play a lot games.
