Default Modular Table Locks Together - 4x6 - matching hills

Here are a few photos of a WIP. It is a 4x6, or 4x4, table consisting of 6 2x2 panels. The panels have a tongue and groove on each corner so they fit together. There are metal inserts at each corner to mount a bracket to lock the board together. No more tiles shifting around as you play. Once the board is locked together is is very stable on a table that is smaller than 4x6, like my dining room table in the pictures.

The tiles need drybrushed and then a light flock. They will match the hills shown.

Have you built this yourself? I use the modula boards and i get annoyed at the moving around and unclipping, this looks like a real solid set up. Are the boards double sided? They look good

Nice... Mind if I borrow you ideas and use it for the battle boards that I will be making for the daughter eventually?

Don't leave us engineers with too much free time on our hands...
we WILL tinker around and build something!!!

The boards are not double sided. I figured the bottom would get abused a bit as I play and set it up.
