I have justed finished a pretty fun commission of a Walnut table with Cherry inlays,
Client asked for a Gaming table to play games like Warhammer etc as well as Poker and many other
games I believe.
They wanted the table to also serve a double purpose as a dinning table.
I saw it in a different direction and designed an Fine dinning table that morphs into a very cool games table,
Complete with LAD lights around playing surfaces, custom drink holders that attach to bottom of the skirts ,
but when not in use one would never know the exist, Made an custom opener to remove top when setting up for Play.
One of the coolest things I thought of his idea of this table is you can put the tongue and groove top over the set up game ,have a big dinner and come back to the on going game at any time.
dry fit of one table end and milled frame -top parts over sized
fine tuning mortise and tenon joinery
905 of table base parts ,joinery cut all dry fit once and sanded to 180 grit
base ready for assembly,where is my impact driver screw gun 😉 he hee
two ends glued up earlier , here only gluing maple cross bracing , ends are just in place to keep things inline and square
base main 3 glue ups complete adding -beading under skirt. nice little detail that also accepts cup holders
ready to attach top rail with the splines this glue up is a pressure cooker 41 clamps all at once
41 clamps to glue top rials all at once to ensure all is Perfectly square for creation of removable top
figuring out proper lay out of wide leaves for removable top
flattening -fine tune of top and top rails with hand planes and card scrapers
moved thing outside for final fine tuning and sanding 100 120 150 180 and 220 grit sanding
prepping for attachment of removable figured cherry cup holders which match the cherry inlays
getting closer to the “finish” line
Key aka raising lever I made to remove the top when converting from Dinning to -Gaming table
