The Kaiser Gaming Table -- for Emperors only...
The Kaiser Table is the ultimate in gaming experience! It has hidden, pull-out Player Stations, along each side, and one on each end, as well. It is custom-built to your specifications! The example shown, is a monstrous 9-feet long, by 5-feet wide! It comes complete with a removable flat Leaf top, which stores beneath, on its base.
This truly is the Emperor of Gaming Tables! Built almost entirely of solid Hickory wood, one of the hardest, and strongest, domestic American woods. Hickory is 10x stronger than a piece of solid Oak wood for supporting weight, with a Janka hardness of 1,850! It takes any color of stain you wish to apply to it (properly stained, it can appear to be Cherry, Mahogany, Black Walnut, or whatever wood you wish, based on color alone).
We seal your Kaiser Table with five coats of non-yellowing, outdoor-strength clear lacquer, to ensure it is proof against daily use and abuse. Your Kaiser Table will last for many generations to come…
Its classic, simple, but elegant design, will stand the test of time, never going out of style. You will be able to hand off this work of art to your grandchildren, and their grandchildren, who will be rolling dice on your Kaiser Table a century into the future. This is something you can be proud to pass along to your heirs!
Corner View, Drawer Doors closed.
There is one Player Station, pull-out drawer, at each end, and up to three Player Stations per 9-foot side, yielding a total seating of up to eight gamers, on a 9-foot by 5-foot Kaiser Table!
For longer Kaiser Tables, additional Player Stations can be added. How many Player Stations can be accommodated, will be determined by our Master Carpenter, Mr. Shawn Davis, as a part of his quote for your custom Table.
Each Player Station Door features a permanent, rare-earth magnet, which secures the door in the open position. Hinges are hidden, so the beauty of the wood is all that you see. To close the Doors, simply pull the top away from the Table, and the Door will swing down, into a closed position, concealing the Player Station Drawer behind it…
This photo demonstrates the beautiful character of the hand-selected Hickory boards Mr. Davis personally chooses for each and every Table he builds. The durable, clear lacquer brings out the magnificent wood grain textures, revealing a masterpiece of wood grain, for everyone to appreciate. All care is given to bring out Mother Nature’s gorgeous grain patterns, to admire and touch. Beauty like this cannot be made, they can only be preserved for future generations to admire and appreciate.
Fixed Height Base, Standard
The Base comes in two varieties: Fixed Base(standard, no additional fee), and an optional, electronic Lift Base. The Fixed Base is made to order for your preferred table height. The optional Lift Base system (additional cost) allows you to raise/lower your Table, at the touch of a button!
The minimum height for the Lift Base is 29 inches; the maximum height is 60 inches… The push-button controller has two memory position settings: you can store two different heights, which can be selected by pressing Memory Position One, or Memory Position Two, to quickly move your table between your two most common height settings.
Both Bases feature the illustrated cross-bar, square setup. The lengthwise cross bars are covered in genuine smooth-grain leather, to prevent scratching of the table leaves. This allows you to store your table leaves in the Base, safely out of the way, when not needed. Simply stack them on the lengthwise cross-bars. On the Lift Base, simply press the up button, until the table reaches its maximum height, then store/remove the Table Leaves, as needed.
Each drawer features anti-slam rails — no matter how hard Players close them, they will not slam, or be damaged. Each drawer’s rail system can support up to 70 pounds — more than enough to accommodate your gaming books, notebooks, laptop computers, tablets, etc.
Each drawer is made entirely of solid Hickory wood. In addition, each drawer has an optional clear acrylic overlay (additional charges apply). These clear overlays lock into position, allowing Players and Game Masters alike, to insert pages beneath the overlay, to use wet-erase pens to track important numbers, notes, and statistics, as desired. You can mark off ammunition, Hit Points, and the like, erasing with a spray bottle of water, and a micro-fiber towel, restoring the record sheet back to an unmarked condition, as needed!
Each drawer has 1.5 inches of clearance, allowing you to close the drawer, with books, dice, and papers in place, to stand up and move miniatures within the Game Well. Then, sit back down, pull out your drawer, and continue gaming, uninterrupted!
9-foot by 5-foot Kaiser, with 8 Player Stations!
Here you can clearly see the 4-inch deep Game Well, where you can insert your desired game mat, terrain, and miniatures! The Game Well has a routed edge, all the way around, allowing you to tuck your desired game mat underneath the Well’s sides, for a seamless, custom-fit appearance.
We will supply a simple game mat surface of your preferred choice, at no extra charge: Forest Green (no pattern), Deep Space Black (no pattern), Ocean Blue (may have a lined pattern), or Desert Tan (may have a lined pattern). Photographic mats of any type you can create, can be added also; if they are over-sized, they can be cut to tuck seamlessly underneath the Game Well’s routed edges.
Contrary to the photo’s, each Player Station’s Drawer is made of solid Hickory, rather than the white shown. This change was made to ensure the strongest drawers possible (Hickory supports 10x more weight than equivalent thickness of Oak!).
The Kaiser can serve as a Dining Table, as well!
The removable Table Leaves are shown in place, transforming your Kaiser Table into a truly multi-purpose Table! It can be used for a large Dining Table, a seamstress’ Cutting Table, a Quilting Table, a super-sized desk, or whatever other table you need…
The model shown, has its Leaves stained Gunstock color, while the rest of the Kaiser Table is clear-coated. We can stain your solid Hickory Kaiser Table any color you desire (order one of our Color Chip Samples to see 4-inch squares of of Hickory stained with five coats of clear lacquer, with all of the standard colors we offer — Hickory will take any color of stain, such that it can be made to appear as Cherry wood, but with the strength, and durability, of Hickory, Janka Hardness: 1,850; Cherry Wood has a Janka Hardness of only 950).
With the Player Station Drawers pushed in, and the doors closed, it will be hard to notice that this is anything other than a standard, over-sized Dining Room Table! It is made almost entirely of solid Hickory wood. The Game Well surface is made of quality 1/4-inch plywood, and the Game Well Substructure is made of solid Poplar Wood, to reduce weight and costs. The Poplar Game Well Substructure can support 200 pounds, though we do not recommend this!
As shown, with a Fixed Base installed, this 9-foot by 5-foot Kaiser Table would sell for $5,000; with the optional electronic Lift System Base installed (four electronic lift legs), the price is $7,000. Freight Shipping and Handling fees are not included in the stated prices: typically $500, or less, within the continental USA. Prices will vary depending upon features chosen, and size. For Tables longer than 9-feet, the Table will be broken down into multiple segments; electronic Lift System Bases can be installed on each segment, with a single controller lifting the entire Table surface at once. The construction materials, and basic design elements, remain constant.
Please compare our prices with similarly sized, solid hardwood Dining Room Tables to see what a bargain the Kaiser, Konig (not released yet), and Prinz Tables really are. Also, compare our features, and functions to other custom Gaming Table manufacturers, and we believe you will be back for your custom Kaiser Table quote. Thank you.
