gaming table top
My name is Jesse, and I live in Louisville, KY.
I picked up an old library table with the veneer top all shot to hell and rather than reapply a new veneer, I am toying with the idea of putting some 3" boards around the edges and making a new top. maybe some felt underneath. We like to play monopoly, but always have to put it away unfinished or make up silly rules to end it faster. this would give me the ability to just leave it under the table top. Not a new concept I know, but I am having some issue finding the best way to make the top so it doesn't warp. The area is about 30x60 that i want to cover. I can cut plywood and clean the edges up by hand, but joinery is out of my knowledge base and hobbyist budget right now.
I want to use it as my kitchen table when done, so it has to look good for the missus. Any suggestions or directions are appreciated.
