Custom gaming Table top

Postby Katt » Fri Dec 10, 2010 9:34 pm

For those who wanted to see this here it is. I was gonna put it in the original thread, but i don't want it to get derailed.
So this is the table set up and mostly ready to play. Favorite things about this is that it's got a lip to store your dice and keep them from rolling off the table, and that you can put you books and other stuff under it. The Dry erasablity was a nice touch too. :wink:

This is a cabinet I made for holding D&D stuff. The top of the dishwasher was just collecting stuff like that anyways! :lol:

What do you use for banding the shelves and doors?

Who made it and what did you use for the dry erase, it looks like a dungeon floor.

Katt himself made both the D&D table, and the cabinet. It's a simple wood lacquer, nice and shiny on top that allows a dry erase like finish. The grid is the one right from the DM's manual.

Katt builds glorified boxes for a living, so he's handy with wood :D

My wife may want to talk to him sometime about making a tack box :) :wink: .

Very cool table top. Nice touch that the DM doesn't have to yell at the players to get their crap off of the table when it comes time to layout the battle.

Thanks for all the compliments everyone! Yes I'm a kitchen cabinet maker (glorified box maker. :D )
The table has two grids from the DM's manual. Our old DM donated the other one. I used a water resistant spray glue to glue the paper to some particle core. I used solid maple for the edging and feet. What you can't see is that there's a hinge in the middle so I can fold it up into half the size for storage.
The banding on the cabinet is done with my work's edge bander. If we didn't have that there's lot of iron on stuff that looks the same. Also there's a hidden function on the cabinet as well. There's pigeon holes in the back on top for holding rolled up grid maps one of our DM's used to use. He used to draw a bunch of the ones he'd need in advance at home and store them in the cabinet.

Yeah, that table is all win. Being able to draw a whole dungeon floor (or most of one) for all to see is very handy.

Very impressive! The last battle map I used was basically just a giant laminated grid. :)
