    Another gaming table 'how to'

    My original table was damaged in storm flooding a few weeks back, so I decided to rebuild... and while I did, I took step by step pics.

    From shaky table tennis table to multi gaming table in a few steps

    The old table consisted of a beat up table tennis table with bat wing legs where you could fold half up for 'play back' games.

    I got 3 off 8' x 4' half inch ply boards and cut them down to 6' x 4', then I edged them similar to the TT table.

    The 2 end boards had edging along 3 sides and slid over the edge of the TT table, the middle board had edging along 2 sides and joined the 2 ends together as a 12' x 6' top board.

    STEP 1

    First thing to do... decide what type of legs you require.

    At first I was going to use wood (3" or 4" square) and connect the main frame to the legs...
    Then I thought about making space, so the table would (at sometime) be required to be "put away"...
    See the bed under the table - it was my concession for taking up so much room.

    So, I decided to use metal legs... also helps to prevent damage if it floods again.

    STEP 2

    Go shopping for materials

    I decided to have the minimum option of ONE 6' x 4' table if required
    That means four legs and independent - sturdy and level

    So, plan 1 dictated two 6' x 4' (each with 4 legs) and a center board which attaches to the two end tables.
    Therefore I need a method of attachment... wood / metal / brackets... we will see at the shops.
