That’s a really sweet creation so far. It makes me realize how much plastic I have sitting in my ‘to build cabinet’....

Those tables that I put together earlier, they are also pretty light and flimsy, so I made new ones out of wood.

The wooden ones seem to match the rest of the furniture better. Here is a new one and an old one together in one shot:

I will keep the old ones, just in case, but I think the new ones look and feel better.

So. I’m completely in awe of the effort and work you’re putting into your board and the furniture. Do you have a blog or build post that you talk about and show how you built them? (From Popsicle sticks? Something else?)

I don't have a blog currently. It's something I'm working on. I'll try to put some more detail into the post when I make the next piece. I've been meaning to take more pictures of the process, Once I get started, it's like I have tunnel vision on the project and then forget to do things like take pictures or document the process.

Oftkilted, I spent last weekend and a good portion of my evenings this week throwing together a blog. I hope to go into more detail about my build process. You can check out what I have so far on this project here: https://elvyler.com/2020/10/custom-heroquest-board/. I've also decided to put together some other articles about other things that I'm interested in related to board gaming.

Enjoy.

Posted a little bit more about the process I went through for the weapon rack on my blog: https://elvyler.com/2020/10/furniture-weapon-rack/.

I'm slowly updating things there, just takes a while to write everything.
