I just wanted to start off by saying I am new to woodworking and that I have alreadly learned a great deal from reading the forum!
From reviews on tools to projects to get me started the site has been a great help!
I have recently been thinking about building a board game table. The idea is to have a table with a recessed area that can be used for gaming but then have a cover that covers the recessed area so that the table can be used for other things.
Here are some examples/plans that help express this concept:
both designs have their pros/cons. I particularly enjoy the Rail system as this allows for all sorts of add ons like drink holders/small snack tables.
My questions are:
Do you think this rail system is as sturdy as possible? Is there a way you can think of to build a “locking” system with this?
How would you suggest I plane/joint the table insert while still making it flush with the edges?
Overall what are your thoughts on these plans? Do you have another plan/suggestion?
I hope that I am not the only one who finds this idea intriguing!
Thanks in advance for your help!
