New table surface (3)...

What I thought would be an easy job, turned out to be a lot more work. The old table top made from Contiboard rested on a wood frame;  once I started dismantling it I found the frame and the board sections held each other together ! (I made it quickly 9 years ago, what a bodge :) )
 I was left with part of a frame which was useful, so yesterday I had to add to it to get a decent frame for the table ....
Today the frame was made a bit more robust and the top skin of 3mm MDF is going on...
In the next couple of days I plan to cover the table with an underlay of felt and then the new playing surface on top of that ....

    1. the table is 3ft by 7ft6in; once the surface is done I will add the backscenes to the side and back - helps with 'illusory depth'

  2. Hi, great job! I admire you with all the effort you needed to put into this. By the way, do you know where I can get laminate flooring aberdeen done well and cheap? I just moved in here and I have no idea who I should choose.
