Terraining Day 03 – The Mythical City Themed table Part 1

I’ve been working on doing a city themed table on and off for the better part of a year.  The only thing mythical about it is the myth that I might ever finish it.  Its a bit of a complicated undertaking so its hard to work on it continuously for long periods of time.

Lately I’ve been getting some motivation (and more importantly, HELP) from my good friend Aaron and we’re closer than ever to having this bad boy finished.  I posting here some of the WIP shots.

This table is modeled loosely on the Penny Arcade Corvis Table.  Which just means its a 4 x 4′ table made of re-configurable set of 2’x2′ boards with a mixture of permanent features and modular sections which can be set-up in various places to change the terrain and has a city theme.

I started off with 2×2′ sheets of 1/8″ thick MDF from HomeDepot.

I’ll update this soon with more progress.
