Day 2 of the table construction


Well,my mate returned to finish the table,and then I thought I should hide the tops imperfections by giving it a coat of paint.Its hard to portray the actual size,until I put some terrain boards and figures on,but I can assure people its pretty impressive,if I do say so myself.

I opted fo plywood to cover the table top which should stop any warping etc.I also opted for dressed timber 3 by 2 for the legs with 4by2 for the actual main frame.Dressed timber is kinder than getting spelks all the time.I attempted to put the scenic backdrop that I had bought,along the wall,but I made a complete hash of it,so luckily I had to other sets,which I intend to put on tomorrow.


This time with wallpaper paste.The back drops were bought from ART PRINTERS, and I thoroughly recommend them if you like the idea of a scenic back drop.The lights dont convey the actual colour,but its actually a pale green,honest.But it will be covered by terrain boards. 



 I am still not certain about the height,but I intend to buy a couple of plastic steps for the shorter person [ie me]

  2. This project has been coming along really well, wont be long now? Dont worry about the height, a milk crate fixes that, I always worried about the width and getting speared in the belly or worse by pikes or bayonets whilst reaching into the middle of the table
