After seeing all the awesome tables and painted pieces, I was absolutely inspired to make one of my own. Once my wife saw how much space was consumed on the dining room table, I had her full support, lol.
This was my first woodworking project of any kind, and I am very pleased with it. I am gathering a small group of players, and a few helped with ideas on the layout.
Its a basic sheet of plywood bolted down to a 6 foot folding table. I used 1x2 inch pieces to do the trimming. I rounded off all the edges, sanded it down and gave it a nice cherry mahogany stain. After scanning complex, naval base and air base markers onto adhesive paper, I placed them on the map and topped it off with plexiglass.
