Most friday nights we play boardgames as a family. And we had some extra room in the living room. So I decided to build us a boardgame table.
One the one hand this avoids having to clean up the dining table in a rush. And on the other it gives us a more comfortable playing environment.
Some features of the boardgame table:
As I couldn't find 4mm thick gaming mats locally, I doubled up on 2mm thick mats. One plain black on the bottom and a nicely patterned gray to match our interior on top.
The table is constructed with a wooden frame on the bottom, followed by 18mm thick MDF for the table surface.
The drawers in place, along with the board stops. (To prevent the wooden boards which can cover the drawers from sliding too deep.)
