Every time I have worked on a gaming table, getting consistent edges on the board sections has been a huge problem. This latest table project has been no exception. However, this time I have come up with a great solution. I had put strips of duct-tape onto the edges of the board to protect them against damage. It occurred to me that if I have an inconsistent edge on a board section, I can make up the space with shims of cardboard taped into the offending areas! I had always known that this was the best way to solve the problem, but I wasn’t sure what the best way to attach the shims would be until this project. Live and learn right?
When we built the table for the Adeptus Windy City club for Games Day 2006, we ran into this problem a little. Because the table was only two sections, it wasn’t too much of an issue.
Here is a question that I have for my visitors who may be reading this. Can you think of a way to make duct-tape take paint better? The paint seems to peal off eventually, and this could be a real hassle for my current table project. Any ideas?
