I'm working on designing a portable/storable game table (top) that won't require a full 4' x 6' table(s) to use. The idea is to make something portable and sturdy enough on its own that it can be placed on a smaller table, or perhaps even a couple chairs, and hold together effectively for a game "anywhere".
The basic design is simply taking a table top (made of plywood) and cutting it in half along the long side (which I just noticed isn't properly scaled to the short side), and add a wood bezel around the whole thing that will also provide a lip against which terrain can be contained to the table. With a couple clasps near the seam, the table top should be sturdy enough not to shift when (if?, no, when) bumped during game play.
I'm guessing that at 3' folded it should be narrow enough to fit in a hatch-back for portability, and with a folded dimension of 4' x 3 ' x 4", it should store fairly conveniently out of the way.
Thoughts on the design idea? Ways to make it better? It's all appreciated.
