Unfortunately there is a distinct lack of companies that make custom boardgame tables for us Aussies. As im not a millionare overseas shipping from the US is not an option so I started looking around for other options.

IKEA tables that are often recommended here and on BGG were not wide enough for my needs as I really wanted an 1800 x 1200 playing surface. Eventually I found a company that makes poker tables and could do custom orders.

Rob at pokershop.com.au was really great and worked with me to get what I wanted. I got a vaulted, speedcloth lined tabled with padded arms and cupholders for $500 delivered to my door. The table is very solid and works perfectly, we christened it last night and everyone was impressed with the quality.

Check it out here, with Sword and Sorcery spread out in all its glory: https://imgur.com/a/tjFki
Sharing for my fellow Aussies who are frustrated with the lack of options available to us.

Gee, thanks. Your generosity is boundless.

is it sitting on a set of trestle legs for some reason?

You said it was solid, but I couldn't see any legs on it, expecting solid wooden legs in the 4 corners. now I'm confused.

I can afford a big table - it's the big house with a big room for the big table that I can't afford.

Must be a different one, there's a couple of us out there. I'm from up on the Gold Coast but I've been around a bit, never Melbourne though.
