Once relegated to children and uber-nerds, board games have gone mainstream. If you're looking to add some tabletop fun... Read more If you play Settlers of Catan, you've probably felt the sting of a too-small table or maybe just weird positioning for the players. This homemade table maximize the play area with card areas, cup holders, and organization areas for all of the resources and bits and bobs. It's EPIC and deserves to live in all of our game rooms. If I had one. Which I will someday! Anyway, let's hoard our wheat (just kidding) and head on over to see the full DIY Settlers of Catan gaming table behind the scenes from Redditor Smobolob… The table is made with a sheet of 12mm ply covered in red felt and a 19mm sheet of oak veneered MDF on top. The borders and legs are made with solid oak from mantel beams. "Natural Oak" stain and a wax polish finish. I wanted the table to be compatible with all expansions as well as every other game, and able to be used as a normal table too. Costs: Sheet wood (2 x ply & 2 x oak MDF): £160 (delivery cost was more than a sheet) Oak mantel beams: £105 Baize and felt: £40 Stain & wax polish: £15 Misc (sandpaper/screws/glue/filler etc): £30 Total: £350 The baize surface.

Reply Why just Catan? Beautiful table but they are so many other games to play. Reply Looks like the maker put the Catan surface (red felt with cut outs) on the bottom, then a plain green baize surface in the middle so that s/he could play any other game that would fit on the surface. On top is the oak/MDF surface, which is intended to work as a dining (or any other use) table. Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
