I can clearly now the lines have gone

I got bored during my lunch break so decided that I would attempt to draw a clearer plan for my table framework:

  1. Excellent, welcome to the blogging!

    Is this going to stand on top of a "normal" table or are legs going to get attached to it?

    1. There will be legs but I am yet to decide in what format. I was originally going to Make them out of the same timber as the frame, using the same hinge method. But then I thought that the structure would be way too weak. At the minute I am considering column legs that screw in and out.

      Suggestions are more than welcome please! :D

  2. What are you using for the 'table' top? I went for the backing sheet you find on cheap cupboards...

    Interested to see legs implemented. I will then copy!

    And welcome... why aren't you following my blog!

    1. I AM following your blog; nummpty! :P

      I will be creating 2' square modular terrain boards. I already possess some made from chipboard but will be investing in some more so that I have options available. I want boards with rivers cut into and roads painted on, etc. Therefore I will be needing durable material that will not drop to bits or flake when I start to cut into it.

  3. get legs from Ikea they are £4.00 each but screw in and out, 18mm MDF would be best for the top is you are cutting into them to make rivers, this will allow you to chase down 6mm without getting any warp
