The unique feature of this table was its ability to be folded away and stored, so not to consume too much space on the yacht where it was made for. The first step was to build the folding frame. Next, the craftsman carefully measures the top of the frame, then using a chisel and a saw, he creates rebates, allowing the leather straps to sit in the frame flush. The straps were selected to match the colour scheme of the playing surfaces. These not only support the folding mechanism but also help to keep the table upright. While table top features a backgammon set, the removable board features a baize playing surface on one side and chess board on the reverse. This recess lid locates on a step detail on the edge of the table.
The final result is a beautifully crafted games table. You can learn more about this project here.
