Sectional Terrain Storage
Anyway, the clean out frees up space for more gaming storage and I decided to build a rack to store my 2x4 sectional terrain panels.
Like most of my gaming projects the "racks" are made out of scrap plywood. The design is very simple - two vertical columns with 3/4 inch rails every three inches.
I then cut some 1/8 inch plywood in the 1.5 inch strips and placed them in the dados to form the rails fro the terrain to rest on. In hindsight I should have gone with 1/4 inch plywood as these are a little flimsy but the panel are light so I should be ok.
You can see the remnants of my old model railroad layout on the shelf - all the trains and buildings were packed away just in case I return to that hobby.
The panels are located in a little 8x8 ft room thats adjacent to my gaming table - the other side has an old workbench which I'll be using for terrain making and that will likely be topic of the next blog post.
One of the more embarrassing things that has happened during "operation declutter" is I've stumbled across a bunch of stuff I forgot I had! Some examples include:
- A Dewalt sable saw that was barely used (I was just about to go out and replace my current one - bonus!)
- a box board of woodland scenics ground foam and clump foliage - pretty much a lifetime supply
- a Noch static grass applicator
