Simplified Gaming Table

I saw my son playing Role Playing games on a poker table. The game uses a generic gaming mat and movable character pieces, in addition to Character Sheets for each player. The poker table had the game mat hanging over the sides of the table, in addition to not allowing room for using the Character sheets for each player. I designed a table which was rectangular, allowed separation between players and gaming area, in addition to beverage and game parts stowage. To save on cost, I used plywood and pine boards for the base and legs, and oak was only used for game player exposed areas. I supplemented red oak surfaced plywood in each storage area to lighten the look, add some contrast, and lastly cut on cost.

  • He loves it. Many other tables were designed for board games. This was designed to fit his gameplay mats and allow room for game pieces.
