In those dark, cold months of winter I often turn to woodworking to keep myself busy. This winter is no different.
It always seems like a poor fit. Even if I should manage to finish a project, I can’t actually finish it. The garage is far too cold for stains and sealers, and the basement is far to poison-your-family-ish and burn-your-house-downish.
Luckily this project will take a while. It might actually be Spring before I manage to put together all of the pieces.
I’m building a transforming coffee/gaming table.
The problem stems from the conflict between gaming with friends and video games. The current table works well for gaming, but its huge. I don’t want this massive thing between me and the screen when I play video games.
Thus, I’ve been designing the perfect table.
It will fold out to an approximate 5′ x 5′ gaming surface. The actual substance that will cover the surface is unknown at this point. Once game night is finished, it’ll fold down to a 5′ x 3′ coffee table, short enough to avoid interfering with my sound system.
Now we just need to find out if my woodworking skills are up to the challenge.
