I'll be starting work on a good game/hobby table soon. I was working on some SketchUps and figured it would be good to get feedback on this as well. I figure a base table that is 4x6 with wings that can make it 8x6. Storage below for big terrain pieces. I've seen table that have a raceway-like a poker table, is that something that would be good to add? Or command stations on either side?

You want to recess the shelf end side (the 4' wide side) a few inches (4" - 6") so you don't bang your knees when you're on that side - plus, like a kitchen bench kickboard for your toes when you're standing next to it.

Also, there exists gate hinges that can create a rebate for the drop down sides to create the abovementioned recess along the 6' side when not full size.

Otherwise, I believe that it will work perfectly for you - neat design.

Stress… is when you wake up screaming and realise you haven't fallen asleep yet.

It is not necessary to understand things in order to argue about them.

I don't plan on it, just because you can maximize storage if you don't have doors.

Great tips thanks!

Here I've added a toe kick and made the table top more counter top with a 4" overhang.

An interesting idea for Command stations... foldaway shelves, like in kitchens for recipe book reading or slide out computer keyboard drawers

Just a thought... it's something that I'm thinking of
