Even though the demand for our product could not be higher we have not rested on our laurels. Our commitment is to continue to develop and refine our product until there is no more room for improvement. Hint: That is never the case because you (our amazing customers) are constantly pushing us to improve. In that vein, we wanted to announce some of the new features we have recently rolled out that we think you will like.
Magnetic Leaf Removal
The evolution of our removable leaf system continues. It all started with a little orange suction cup that we quickly learned had some limitations. Then we switched to a lift rod system, deemed “The Popper”, which was a great improvement. But even “The Popper” had its drawbacks and we knew that while viable, it was not the long-term solution we were looking for. After about 6 months of research and testing, we have come up with what we feel is the optimum system. Through the power of magic and magnets, our leaves will now rise from their sleep. Our new system involves the use of a wooden knob finished to match the table that has a very powerful rare earth magnet in it. This works in conjunction with a metal block we install inside of a leaf. Another detail of this system is that each knob is hand turned by a craftsman, no CnC production here, so no 2 are exactly alike. We also provide a convenient storage location on the underside of the table to keep the knob handy at all times. The second best part, behind the magic stuff, is this new system is retrofittable with either of the 2 previous ones. So if you have already snagged one of our custom board game tables be on the lookout for an email from us. We will be sending out something to our table owners soon with an option to upgrade their existing table.
New Stain Color on Hard Maple
As we continue to keep up with today’s decorating trends we have added a new stain color to our line-up. It is a deep black stain we call Vanadium that is applied to Hard Maple. What makes it unique is the process we use allows for some graining and wood character to show through. This is in stark contrast to a piece that is just painted black and looks like a piece of plastic. Just be aware that it might not be the right color if you have a need to keep it clean and shiny because it does show fingerprints very easily. Just lock the beasts in the dungeon so you can enjoy it 24/7.
The Radcliffe Modern Trestle Table
As far as we know we are the only manufacturer currently making a custom trestle style gaming table and are glad to offer a second style to our line. This particular trestle base was initially made as a custom piece. After posting it on Instagram, and a great review the customer posted on BGG, demand has increased so much that we have decided to offer it as a standard option. If you are looking for a more elegant, modern look and want a trestle style table the Radcliffe Modern is what you are looking for!
You have our commitment that we will continue to evolve our product offering as the market and our customers dictate. This means keeping up with design trends and making improvements to the end product as we see fit. It is part of our commitment to being the preferred manufacturer of heirloom custom geek furniture.
