Description

I finally have a large table where I can display and build Lego. The table is just big enough to put on a reasonable Lego track with some streets along it. This way the nephews and nieces can also play. (That Barbapappa door is still from the previous residents)

Large custom game table

I first designed everything in Sketchup. First I sawed the 8 legs to size from beams of 40x70mm. I took into account that adjustable screw legs had to be installed that are around 2.5 cm high. These feet are to make it completely level, since the floor in the attic is not perfectly flat. In retrospect, my choice of legs was not so handy because they actually have to be adjusted from above. However, it also works with pliers. I made the frame with 40x40cm beams. I mainly made the mounting with oblique screw holes. I only used screws, no glue. The table tops are screwed on from above. The main challenge was attaching the legs. With the first three legs it is a very wobbly whole and if you work alone it is quite difficult. Fortunately, I had a good stack of crates that I could use as temporary legs.

The dimensions of the project

The large blade is 240.0x130.0cm and the small protruding blade is ~ 98.0x65.0cm. The whole table is 70.0 cm high.
