Turner gamer table

The client wanted to surprise her husband with a special gift for his birthday and decided to ask us to create a games table that would house his marble games board.

The brief was to create a table with a compartment for the chess pieces and would also allow the marble games board to be flipped over to backgammon on the underneath of the board. To allow easy access to the secret compartment, we fitted the table with a button mechanism which when pushed, a dowel pushes the board up.


So that the table was in keeping with the existing old oak furniture, we used a process called 'fuming'. Oak is put into a chamber with ammonia and in 24 hours the colour is significantly darker.
