Store-It-All Game Table Woodworking Plan
Let the games begin! And when the fun is done, organize the boards and playing pieces nearly inside.
Hidden inside this table are five tabletop inserts with different game boards mounted to each of their sides. A sixth insert, layered in matching laminate, provides a smooth surface for playing dominos or cards, of just using the table in typical fashion. Below, a drawer that pulls out either sides of the table features compartments for storing playing pieces and accessories.
In addition, we've added the plan for our dual-purpose router edge guide for ease in trimming flush the banded plywood edges. Also, we've added the technique on working with laminate for creating the playing surface.
Dimensions: 36" W x 36" D x 30" H.
