1940s Wooden Gameboard Repurposed Table

Hey folks!  I just finished a table that I really enjoyed putting together.  It started with a fantastic Carrom brand #95 wooden board game.  I removed the other side design to give myself a flat surface to build my table leg foundation.


All the netting in the corner pockets is intact and the table legs have a naturally-chipped patina that you just can't replicate without a lot of patience and torture!  Haha.

HOW ABOUT THOSE GRAPHICS!!!  

I did some custom wood work underneath to give the table legs strong support and I cut into the 2x4 framing pieces to offer more leg room height underneath.  I also reinforced the legs with some metal angle brass hardware.

This newly-created table is ready for a second life of more games or simple enjoyment as a side table or party table.  GAME ON!!!

Measurements:  28.5" wide;  28" tall.

FOR SALE!... This custom creation along with all of my others is available in the GADGETSPONGE ETSY SHOP or at Timeline Antiques & Collectibles Mall in Shreveport, LA.

Dominoes! Mexican Train and Chicken Foot Center Starter Hubs!

UPDATE:  The three I initially made have sold already.  I plan to make more very soon.  If interested, please contact me!

Hey folks!  It's gametime!  My family enjoys getting together as often as possible to play dominoes.  We always have a center starter piece to start out "trains" (of dominoes).  Instead of the plastic ones you get these days, I thought it would be fun to make some out of found items and scrap wood pieces.

This custom creation along with all of my others is available in the GADGETSPONGE ETSY SHOP or at Timeline Antiques & Collectibles Mall in Shreveport, LA.

GadgetSponge @ Home: Custom Bookcase with Vintage Lockers & Wire Baskets

Hello again folks!  It's time for an update on where one of my creations ended up going with its new owner.  You may remember the custom bookcase I made not too long ago that incorporated vintage lockers and wire baskets (HERE).  Well, now that fine piece belongs to Benjamin in San Francisco.  He was kind enough to send a picture of the bookcase in its new setting.  Thanks Benjamin and I hope you enjoy it for many, many years to come!

If you have a GadgetSponge creation and want to send a picture of it in its new home, please do and I'll feature it here on the blog!  Just contact me with the "Contact" button at the top of the page and I'll send my email address.
