Ah, but no link to the article. Guess I won't be reading it...

Finally - you've posted all over these boards about Carolina Game Tables but when I'd do a search for them I'd find a webpage with zero pics on it.

At last I can see what they're making and it looks good. Too bad they don't offer various sizes - a 4' x 8' would be awesome.

They should sell PDFs on how to build some of their stuff. The hardcore DYI builders who would have ripped off the ideas from online pix might just buy the PDF just to be more precise and the dreamers who would never buy one of the tables anyway might spring for a PDF download purchase just to keep dreaming. Either way, Carolina Tables gets a few more bux from folks folks who would not have bought from them any other way.

I've been following "Flat Top" since its days as a DIY project and VG's site has had little regarding its progress.  You'll note that specifications still indicate that the rule book will have "x" pages.

Still, hope it comes to fruition.

we mentioned this one in a previous GARPA, but it could still use some love to get over the top
