The table top

This is the adventure of two guys (with the help of a girl, too) as they attempt to build the ultimate modular tabletop gaming table. We decided to build our own table from scratch to fit the design we wanted. The basic idea was to create a lipped table with various size terrain blocks so that we could mix and match them for different terrain configurations.

This is a work in progress. The table is (mostly) done, but the terrain is just being started.

We started with a basic folding table design. The sides were to fold up, and the legs were to fold under.

As we began actual planning, we changed the design so that it would fold under instead of up. We built the table top first.

We stopped here for the day, and decided to figure out legs later.

    Hi Svenn Tewfik,

    I’ve posted the article on my Warhammer blog:-

    Do you mind me asking how much all the material cost you or is that a rude question ?

    Nice work, I’ll be back ! ;)

    We have been saving all the receipts so that we can make a post at some point with the costs. The table itself has cost us somewhere in the range of $200 I believe. Keep an eye out for a future post about costs.
