The Unique Table - Gaming Duo to Encompass all !
Furniture design has been my world for thirty seven years, I have spent much of my time identifying any potential flaws over various design concepts, then working hard with companies to find a solution.
Always taking the viewpoint that.... "There is a another way"
Whilst dining/gaming tables have existed for many years, taking on many shapes by design. They remain the hub that centre's around many, " Sometimes too many" hours of enjoyment for a broad spectrum of gamers.
By the creation of that "battling arena", lends a means to test your vast combination of skills and sometimes whit against a worthy opponent.
Over recent years the table designs have evolved visually, yet the overall structure has continued to remain the same. Recognising the benefits of existing gaming tables, I felt there could be a simpler way to transform the tables.
Consider, if you could drop down the hinged supporting side rails, flip the top over in seconds, to reveal integrated cup holders, a shallow vault, comfortably wide armrests. Just add the matting and you're done.
"So began my quest".....
I set myself the challenge to design a range of tables that would adhere to the brief. Contemporary Design, easy to convert by means of a practical solution. Strong enough to meet with the demands of everyday life. Creating a duo table that would fit comfortably into its surroundings by day, cool enough to impress your friends allowing you to unleash your mojo by night.
One of the many design challenges raised during the project would be to create tables that would be aesthetically well-balanced. By retaining certain aspects within the design structure allowed for the project replicated over a multiple range of table sizes.
Integrating the unique rotary system into the central table in order to enable the simple transition from table to gaming, without further requirement to add or remove other parts, has been the hardest but most interestingly rewarding part of the project so far.
I believe that combined efforts of our team have successfully managed to achieve exactly what we set out do. Realising all the design expectations.
We are a dedicated company committed bringing a selection of our own upcoming innovative gaming brands. My own avid passion to create new innovative apparatus games underpins the diving force behind our future.
Designing a range gaming tables became a natural progression in view of our existing manufacturing capability. strengthened by our years of experience in quality furniture manufacturing.
Streamlined integration of our own modern computerised company, enables us to accurately position the many components involved in manufacturing process, allowing us to produce cost effective tables of the highest quality within a realistic time scale.
About The Tables and Finishes
Our tables would be manufactured using the highest quality veneered board, lipped with matching 10mm thick hardwood. Partial Pre-assembly will take place where the tables will then be professionally spray finished with three coats of A/C clear lacquer at a sheen level of 15%( from experience this is the sheen level that shows the least finger marks ). Professional furniture finishing requires a vast range of skills combined with product knowledge, our production team are a highly proficient group with a keen eye for detail.
The Coffee Chest Gamer
Ideal for a casually relaxed evening, or time with the kid's !
with the 26mm thick matching finished vault base,
"Leave out the matt and it's ideal for stacking dexterity games".
The Bounty Gamer
4-6 "And No Mutineers at this table"!
The Endeavour Gamer
Lots of space and snacks on the side, the endeavour comfortably sits 6-8.
"clearly named for a challenging night ahead".

"Victory you say"!
"well we will have to see about that"!
"Will you be known hereafter as the Legend "? On the 6-8 beast.

We Believe our tables should be made from the correct timber... Chosen by you.
Stained generic timber will only replicate the colour.
Our use of the chosen natural timber, retains the beauty of both grain and colour.
Should the table suffer slight damage at a later date in your home, it's easy to touch up by using a clear lacquer. Practically impossible to ever truly match had the table been stained.
American White Ash (Natural giving a Very light brown / cream finish, will mellow to a slightly richer golden colour over time)
European Oak (Natural giving a rich medium brown colour, will mellow about 2 shades darker over time)
Black Walnut (Chocolate in colour, will darken to a beautiful darker rich chocolate colour quite quickly)
All our tables will come supplied with a leatherette vinyl 4mm fire retardant foam backed matting pre-cut to the vault size, in any of the colours from the available range.
Hard wearing with a semi ridged surface, makes it easy to pickup and glide the cards. with the added benefit of a waterproof surface.
Chosen for its flexibility and smooth interior. The Matting Keepsafe is fully adjustable, making it the perfect place to store the matting when not in use.
Our Card Flippers
Easy to attach, our card flippers make it simple to cover your cards when your away from play.
Complete with an easily accessible storage bag.
We also include a slot for your pencil !
Should our project be successfully funded, all our tables would be manufactured from start through to completion in our own manufacturing facility in the UK, combining the latest CNC technology with our dedicated team of skilled craftsmen. The entire project would be entirely under my control, allowing production to be scheduled in-house following a timed workflow production.
Why Bring this project to Kickstarter
Success of any project will always rely on a number of factors, cost effective purchasing, careful planning, and production are all essential. Requiring a sufficient order quantity in order deliver high quality tables at a like for like competitive price. We have spent 8 months refining every detail setting a realistic goal, production schedule, product range and delivery timeline.
Our Target Goal
Set at the lowest possible target in order to be able to confidently full-fill our commitment. It would be impossible to manufacture the tables at the prices we are asking for in our rewards if we were to make the tables as one off items.
Table Home Assembly
When designing one of the first things I consider is the end user.
"how difficult will it be for someone with no prior knowledge of assembly to put it together"?
The Centre Table leaf, The 2 ends which are pre-assembled including the legs, And finally the 2 side table support rails. the tables can be assembled using a screwdriver (not supplied)together with the 2 allen keys we will supply, all required assembly points are pre drilled and all fittings where possible will be attached prior to delivery.
In addition to our snap video shorts on our page. We will also supply a link to our assembly video to our table backers.
Please Note. 2 Person Required for Table Assembly
Risks and challenges
Our project has been well prepared, the extensive programming has been done, the tables have been tested as you can see in our video.
I have sourced the various component suppliers, stressed the need for consistent supply, and we already have a well established manufacturing facility.
Mass production and bulk importation by a third party is not the answer !
By manufacturing the tables entirely in-house under a constant flow production will allow us to turn round tables on a week by week basis whilst ensuring quality is maintained at every stage.
Our method of production means that regardless of size or colour, would enable us produce and deliver on a first come first served basis.
Production would commence two weeks from receipt of funding and our manufacturing capacity is Three tables per day with a two week cycle rotation. (however we have just taken delivery of another CNC machine which will further increase our production)
By giving an honest appraisal of realistic delivery times and by the method of production this we hope will be taken into consideration to support the project.
