Got WOOD?

So Lachlan and I have been talking a lot about having our own table to play on. Well he took the idea and ran. He called me today and said come build the table. So I went over to his house and we spent 2.5 hours building our own gaming table. This should alleviate the stinky people problem. Anyhoo, he got the materials and we put it together. Here's the results... POWER TOOLS YAY!!!!!
Table top and framing beams.
Frame is built and the top is placed on to the legs.
All 4 corners put together.
She's a tall drink of water. 4x4 surface and she stands at about 4 to 4.5 feet tall

Next up, gotta make it mobile. It's a 4 wheel drive. Ok here's where we lose a few pictures well because it was time to put the shelf brackets on and then take it inside. PROBLEM....The table is 48 inches wide and 4 feet tall. well the hall we have to take it down is 36 inches wide and 5 feet long. problem time...so we had to take off all the legs. This resulted in 2 stripped screws 1 bloody fingers and a disassembled table. But we got it done and moved into the room.
rebuilt in the room. Notice the under storage and the shelf.
a few necrons checking out the area.
Lach moving his army to its new home. More progress pictures coming as the table progresses. He's gonna do felt in green white and grey and either set it up so it snaps on or Velcro's so its easily changeable. We should be playing a game tomorrow I'll be bringing some terrain. It's a great table. Perfect gaming height. There's no bending over at all you're right at game height so you just move and play. It's perfect for pictures. Everything about it is great. Thanks Lach, hopefully it starts to grow on Brittney.

Now before I say this I think the table is great, but, 4 by 4 isn't really that big, no offence, I still love it but just pointing it out.

It's still in progress. We haven't finished the leafs or the brackets to hold them so its only 4x4 now. The finished table will be 8x4 or 6x4 or 4x4 with the two remvable 2 ft. leafs.

Not likely to ever grow on me dear :) But I'm glad you guys are having fun.

P.S. To Gamers World...please do not incourage a larger table. The house is only so big.
