Build Your HYBRID Series Table
The Hybrid was born for the need of a more durable surface than what was offered by the Gamer Series for use by families and heavier gamers. Blending the building materials of the Gamer and Event Series has created a Hybrid with a solid oak tabletop surface, and a tulipwood body that is accepting of a range of stains to create your perfect table.
The HYBRID Series is our mid range offering. It's a beefier version of the GAMER Series, still using a tulipwood construction on the body but upgrading the top surface to solid oak.
The arm rests are approx 100mm deep. Inside of the arm rest is the top of the internal walls which also acts as a shelf for the tabletop lids to rest on when in dining table mode. Altogether the depth is around 4.5 inches deep on each side.
The internal cellar depth can be ordered to be either 50mm, 70mm or 90mm when the lids are on the table, plus 20mm for the arm rest depth when the leaves are off the table.
The legs are 27 inch tall and 80mm wide.
The tabletop lids length equals the cellar width plus 30mm to fit between the arm rest. The width of the lid depends on the size of the table. Hybrid tables use 2 piece lids to keep it manageable use to the extra weight of the oak.
A blend of woods
Using solid hardwoods we're able to create high quality heirloom quality tables that look as good as they are durable, creating something that will see many game night sessions for years to come. With a rock solid oak top surface, and a tulipwood body, this is the perfect blend of high end gaming table vs cost.
Solid wood and a beautiful grain and natural colour. Finishes beautifully with several coats of OSMO Oil.
A budget friendlier hardwood and a great option for the base and legs to paint if creating a 2-tone build.
For the flooring of our tables we offer the option to include a removable neoprene gaming mat from Patriot Games, or a fitted faux-leatherette.
The neoprene gaming mats are a high quality material, soft to the touch and when pressed will pop cards up off of the surface, making it easer to pick up those tricky cards and tokens. The mats are lined underneath with a grippy rubber lining so when inside the table they won't go anywhere. And in case of any unfortunate spills, the mats can be removed and run through a cool wash in a washing machine to bring them back to life.
The faux leatherette is a PVC material, so if waterproof and easy to clean, so these are fitted in place and no removable.
Both options are available in a range of colour options, or with the neoprene mats we can also have these custom printer (logo's, etc).
Stain/Paint Finishing Colours
If going for a "2-tone" look, then the water based wood dyes we use should be perfect for the job. From traditional wood colours for when you want to match up a tulipwood body with a solid oak top, through to a specialist "black black" option for those that like things on the darker side!
For staining we use the indoor products by Little Fairs.
For Painted finishes we recommend using Valspar Paint. With this we use the Trade variant in an eggshell finish which gives a more durable finish and a nice matt/satin sheen. Valspar paints are available at B&Q so are easily accessible, useful for if you ever need more paint to do touch ups in future.
Top Coat Finishing
Unless painted, we always finish our tables with OSMO Hardwax Oil, or more specifically the Polyx-Oil in a Matt finish. This gives a - in our opinion - nicer sheen to the finish than satin or gloss would offer, and is a super durabile top coat to the hardwoods.
As well as the smooth to the touch finish we're left with, other benefits are:
+ Highly resistant to common liquid spillages such as water, juice, tea, cola and wine.
+ Saliva-resistant and sweatproof, suitable for children’s toys (EN71.3).
+ Microporous, breathable finish which does not crack, peel, flake or blister.
Choice of Attachments
One of the great things about gaming tables are the use of 'attachments'. These offer useful aids for things such as cup or token holders, card stands, phone and tablet trays and many more to come.
