in my last post I showed some pictures of a selfmade terrain plate for Dead Man´s Hand.
But one plate is not enough and I always have the problem that I have to use some boards that have the wright color but not the wright size. It is always tricky to form a suitable gaming table.
So I decided to produce some more plates in 60x60cm of size that are modular and would be able to be arranged in different settings.
It is a try for I never did this before. In the last days I often made up my mind how to manage this project because I´m not a carpenter but a simple account manager.
I love to work with wood and I also like to create or build something in compensation to my daily business.
So here are the first results of this Work in Progress.
First of all I organized some mdf-plates of 60x60cm size and 1cm height. Also I bought some wood affords.
These wood affords are 1cm in depth and 3cm in height. I cut these affords into 59cm length.
|Then I drilled some holes into the mdf-plates and fixed the cutted affords of 59cm with small screws.|
Tadaaah !!! :)
As the affords are 59cm and the mdf-plate has 60cm length I just had to fix 4 of these affords.
It overlaps only once on each side.
|The finished construction. But I wanted more....|
I just measured 1,5cm from the top of the construction...
|...and just 5cm from each edge.|
|After that I drilled a hole into the afford on the marked spots...|
|...and just fixed a magnet into the drilled holes.|
|I just had to be careful to fix the magnets in the wright way to be sure that the poles would not repel themselves.|
|Five new terrain plates ready for further construction.|
|It fits very well - :)|
|Next step is to glue tiles of 58x58cm styrodur in 4cm heigth.|
|PVA-glue - the best to fix the styrodur.|
|The filled frame....|
|There is one part of styrodur missing. So the DIY-shop will see me again tomorrow.|
To be continued....
