    Default Kickstarter: Modular Gaming Table

    Dear reader(s),

    I started the year with a new wargaming blog called Realms of Miniatures.

    I already posted some work I did on a Modular Gaming Table and planning to do a lot more in the future. I hope you enjoy reading it.

    Below some pictures to get you interested

    Kind regards,
    Dreamfish

    Very nice. Did you machine all the legs and cross members from bar stock, or can these pieces be purchased ready-made from DIY home improvement stores?

    That's right, the same frame can be used for gaming and storage. This blog post shows the construction of the table.

    The whole table is handmade from two types of aluminium bars. 150x150mm and 200x200mm bars. These are welded together at various points. The whole structure is pretty simple actually. The difficulty lies in the tools needed to work with the material and the precision needed to make it work. Up to a precision of 2/10 of a mm to be exact. The table also underwent a Powder coating. Which makes the paint very durable and neat.

    The connection bars use a simple but effective ball locking mechanism to hold the frames together. As the image below shows, the whole mechanism exists out of two parts.



    This makes it very easy to (un)lock the frames. It takes about 15 minutes to construct the 4x3 table configuration.

    Good stuff man, brilliant idea and execution.
    Somehow I see this evolving into a MkII that's completely foldable, and a MkIII that folds itself at the push oh a button.
