    LEGO table advice needed

    I'm definitely leaning towards custom for my display tables for these very reasons. Fitting baseplates, and saving my back! Oh yes. This is a good one. ooooooooh, I like these. I love the simplicity of the leveling system. Any idea what one table costs on average in materials?

    I finally stumbled upon some inspiration, and I'm building my pinterest board! I'd love to see what you're thinking.

    LEGO table advice needed

    This is probably a good plan. I got six 6-foot banquet tables off Craigslist that I will start with. 3 will hold my current display, and 3 will be my sort/build area. I have a bunch of various Akro Mills storage cabinets that will be mounted on the wall for parts storage. I am handy, so I'm leaning towards building my own. New houses will be going up in my neighborhood for the next few years, so there should be an adequate supply of scrap lumber to make use of! What should I search on? When I search "lego tables" I get a train tables for little kids.
  7. Hi guys, I am in the US, and will be moving into the house of my dreams next month. I will finally have the basement I've dreamed about. The one where I will have plenty of room for storage, build space, and a large scale city display. This brings me to my point; what should I do about tables? I'm going to need tables for building on, sorting on, etc. And I'll need tables for my display(s). And I'll need a bunch of them. What's my best bet? My most economical option? Do I buy a bunch of tables? Or do I build my own? What have you guys done??? Thanks!

    Odd. I don't think I've ever had a baseplate warp on me. Unless I stored it wonky somehow.

    If you want to get really technical, they didn't say it was "technically incorrect". They said it wasn't "technically incorrect". I must be just a touch younger than you. While we had pong, Atari was our thing. And we called each other every now and then. Normally we'd just ride bikes to each others house and yell at their house until they came out.

    When you were a kid, did you call your friend and say, "Hey, do you want to play Nintendo?" Or did you actually say, "Hey, do you want to come over to play a video game on my Nintendo Entertainment System console?"

    that's what I was wondering. is it an accent thing? Here in Michigan, most everyone (with the exception of AFOLs) has always said LAY-go.

    Thank you for this! I've been saying this forever. And on a related topic, I was just thinking about this the other day. Where is it stated that it is wrong to pronounce it LAYgo?

    Do you buy toys other than LEGO?

    Once my LEGO hobby hit a tipping point, I realized I don't have room, or money, for multiple hobbies any more. I used to obsessive collect unopened Star Wars figures that just collected dust. No, I sell off what I can, and the rest gets opened and displayed in my offices at work. (I work in two locations so I have plenty of space!) I used to build prop replicas from movies. I have since sold off all my supplies. I used to be big into Lord of the Rings and Star Wars minis tabletop gaming. Once I realized my kids had no interest in playing, I sold them all off. Once I'm into my new house, and have some space, I do plan on getting back into costuming. I love Halloween!

    Totally agree with this one. Especially if I buy a used set and the stickers are all jacked up. My biggest pet peeve is people correcting people that say "legos". Seriously. Give me a break. I think people already thing we (AFOLs) are an odd bunch, but then to through that in on top of it? I called them legos my entire childhood.
  15. $1.50 - $2.00 is barely going to cover the cost of the torso itself. There is no room for any sort of profit here.
