This Game Table is set to ship out this week. The Table is made from solid Sapele for the legs, aprons and drawer fronts.

The removable top has a chess/checkerboard veneered in Sapele and Bird’s Eye Maple.

When the the top is removed a felt covered game surface is revealed for assembling puzzles or playing cards or other games.

The underside of the top is veneered in Sapele with brass squares set in each corner.

The squares sit over the leveling bolts that hold the top over the felt covered game surface.

The drawers are lined in felt. I wrapped the felt over 1/8 hardboard pieces.

I made these threaded inserts and these Brass Leveling Pads

A threaded insert is epoxied into the bottom of each leg.

Then a leveling pad is screwed into the insert.

That’s great. I love the brass pulls for the top, but especially having a felt interior for other games.

Awesome table. All of the details, including your metal work on the leveling pads and bolts for the removable table
are very professional.

Thanks for sharing.
