In a couple of months we will complete the remodel on our home and I will finally have a man room. I will be building a game table and I was interested in the not-so-common construction of your table. Just curious how the sunken gaming area works for you. It looks like it encourages your players to keep their "crap" off the game surface, a source of constant annoyment for myself. Where do your players put their crap? Is there an undersection for player storage? Where do they roll dice?

The table is custom made. I have some pictures of the table and the game room here:

There's some info in those threads about the table as well. Basically, the table does offer a sunken area, but there are also three pieces which fit over the top to give it a conventional tabletop. Each side has pull out additional surface that has built-in shelves underneath for books. These surfaces are for players to put their "crap" and roll dice, although a few still roll in the sunken area. The bottom surface of the sunken area is a dry/wet erase grid. The height of the sunken area was designed specifically around Dwarven Forge pieces (it's about three inches--just enough for one level of DF and maybe some monster minis that rise up a bit taller).

The idea is that I could start out a session "in town" with the conventional table top, and then remove the top surface to expose the dungeon (or whatever) already pre-built underneath. It works out pretty well.

Wow. That's the best gaming table I've ever seen. One day, I'll have to incorporate some of your designs into a similar table. The slide out "shelves" for the players books and dice are awesome. In fact, the whole concept is brilliant in it's simplicity and usefullness.
Awesome.

Yeah, this is going into the design plans for our next table. That won't be for a while yet.

Monte,

Thanks for the table idea. I am currently getting a chest built to attempt to store my DF. THe next project was to get a custom table built. Your ideas are awesome.
