TOPIC: Max height of DF

Re:Max height of DF 2 Years, 10 Months ago  
I'm excited that my medieval table and chairs WILL be a reality for my medieval game room. I'm working with a master craftsman who is a third generation woodsmith. We have taken all your suggestions seriously and think we have solved some problems with reach and site-lines among other issues.

There will be a three tier "Player's Dungeon" (PD) inside the table. The depth of the inside ( PD )of the table will be 6". The players will have higher seating to be able to reach inside to the bottom of the PD, and player drawers that swivel up from under the table and lock in place beside the player with a swivel feature to the drawers. The swivel feature allows the player to slightly swivel their player drawer to better suit there seating preference. The old feature was a simple pull out drawer but this prevented reach to inside the PD. The drawers serve to allow the players to put papers and items inside the drawers and place books on top of the drawers.

There will also be a acrylic dice tray that slides on the edge of the PD. The tray will be able to lock into rack that make the tray level with the top of the table.

The middle layer will be adjustable in the PD and will be clear acrylic like the dice trays. Thank you Arcarius for the idea of acrylic.

The table will be 8'x4'.

Any other ideas? It will be four months of waiting so there's time to make some minor changes.

Actually the acrylic idea comes originally from IO. But it's a darn good one!
Congrats on finding someone to build that table. How is the rest of the room coming along?

Pusherman,
We will see. All the ambiance doesn't make up for a lousy DM. I really hope to learn how to be a good DM. I want to make the gaming fun and fast paced.

My table is 39 inches (99cm) tall. It is 9 foot wide by 6 foot deep and I find it works fine for me and my friends. I roleplay, paint, model and wargame on it.

I, and most of my friends, are over 6 feet tall though. It may be a bit of a stretch to get to the middle if you are short.

One of my friends has an 8' by 4' board. He now wishes he had gone 8' by 5.'
The extra foot is very useful for elbows, dice, books etc.

In the last two years I moved from a six foot by six foot square table to an eleven foot by four foot table. I have been working on some kind of way to make a players station at my table to give me some of my table space back because it feels like once you add books and snacks that four foot wide space shrinks down to about twoish lol.

I use side tables in my games to stack other things on. Players generally stand up and move around when we play, so no one is stuck in one spot in a chair anyways. The bigger challenge is me losing stuff during the game, haha..

The risers in the last one are soooooooo sweet! Maybe someday I will be ambitious enough to try that. And IO's posts are always excellent and educational.

These old posts are really important. The set up does inspire me. Unfortunately I will have to wait on these ideas for about three months. I'm finishing up my college degree and the furniture I'm building won't be ready till Christmas. I feel like a kid in a candy store who can't eat the candy till after supper time!
