DYI Gaming table video
« on: October 29, 2017, 03:11:58 PM »



I realize that some of this build is probably more than many here (including myself) have the room, tools, or time to make but who knows?

I especially like the horizontal TV in the middle. Imagine playing a VASSAL game and having room to lay out the game's physical play aids. Maybe add touchscreen?

I have not watched the entire video yet. But I will say this. No way you can build that for $150. No way. No. Way.

That is a nice table. Can't believe it only cost $150 though....

The guy says he himself spent about $250. He indicates that you could do it for $150 if you leave out some features. There are links on the Youtube page to diagrams and also needed materials lists.
