Why can't we make a gaming table that's a truly great dining table first?
First we feast. A roomy dining table with modern design lines.
The dream is a dedicated gaming space where the crew or family can relax come game time. The reality is there's usually only room for one table in any home and that table needs to make dinner happen first.
There are a lot of great gaming tables out there but they don't make great dining tables—always a little out of place and rarely offer any style for the spaces we create to put them in.
The Dresden is designed to look just like a dining table, to fit in with modern aesthetic, and to fly under the radar so that it can play a normal role in your everyday life whichever style you choose
No veneers here—solid hardwoods where it counts and hearty bamboo that takes a beating.
Why is it a challenge to get a gaming table made from quality hardwoods like walnut, cherry, or oak? It's a little pricey and it's hard to source in good quality, but it's worth the effort for a feature furniture piece.
The Dresden offers solid hardwood legs, external aprons, and a 1" thick dining top made in three sections that can be easily removed to reveal the gaming surface—bamboo.
Don't scoff! Bamboo is a titan on the Janka Hardness Scale when it comes to denting and wear. Bamboo bests walnut and even hangs with hard rock sugar maple when it comes to damage resistance. Pretty handy when you’re rolling fancy metal dice or “you-know-who” beats the table in frustration after another Eurogame defeat (Damn point salads!).
Go ahead, throw a fit. Beat the hell out of that bamboo. The Dresden can take it.
Bells and Whistles. It's all here.
Rail systems are pretty cool and offer a great way to personalize your set up. For us, the concept simply didn't make it through our design filter. Too much noise.
We don't want to nickel and dime you for accessories and, when they're not in the way, they position you too far from the action.
Cup holders, Dice Bins, Counter and Chit Holders, and Card Slots are all built right in putting everything within arm's reach. It should all be there where you need it without all the fuss.
