Fliptop Gaming Dining Table

This is a matching set to my previous Batman Fliptop Gaming Dining Table. I designed and built this double-decker table for the dual purpose of eating and playing board games with friends and family

It is three square feet and easily disassembled without using tools. The legs are bolted onto dividers using wing bolts. The sub-table is great for holding phones, food, and spare game pieces, while keeping the main surface clear for playing games. The surface is removable/reversible, with different designs on each side. I used painters tape to create positive/negative designs with wood stain. The game boards are to be used with wooden marbels and I routered out the holes with a round nose bit. I then covered the surface with several coats of polyurethane.

The game board patterns on the surfaces are "Aggravation" and "Chinese Checkers". The decorative patterns are Superman and Imperial. Each leg has a unique symbol so its easy to match up during setup/teardown.

  • Great job.  I love the use of painters tape to give you the look of inlay.  Your functionality of these tables was well thought out.  Hope you enjoy them.

    • Thank you! I have greatly enjoyed the multi-use functionality of these tables! The painters tape trick is a very cheap and easy way to get the look of inlay. I use it on almost all of my furniture projects now.

  • Very independent thinking using both sides  of table. Thinking of using same color & size of marbles. Good job thinking outside the box. Innovation Telsa needs engineering like you. Very original and colorful.

  • Nice having two tables Batman & Superman. Lots of friends playing all the different games. Very innovative using wing nuts to help move tables room to room or another location. Your friends invite you over to their house bring your own tables. Each table leg as Batman or Superman stain into legs. Match the legs to matching table. Good thinking please continue your innovation. Congratulations

  • Super good idea to use tape & stain over wood for Superman design or Batman design on other table. Good area for games or meals. Maybe next table an have cup holders for water or juice. Very good job Tarzan
