View Full Version : Board edging

OK, I've got some two-foot squares of 'pinkboard, also some of foamcore (two layers, fastened together with carpenter's glue so that the 'warpage' will tend to push the edges together and the centers apart - like()this )
What I need now is some long thin strips of _something_ to glue around the edges to keep the foam from denting and make the edges look neat.
Yours, John Desmond

I use lengths of oak hardwood trim, as shown here (http://theminiaturespage.com/picture.mv?pic=news/pics/2006/jun/546158b.jpg), to "frame" my game-boards. Available at Home Depot and other DIY stores, and measuring 3/4" high x 1/4 inch wide, this trim, however, might not be tall enough to frame your game-boards. Next time you're at one of those stores, simply see what would work if the hardwood trim is too small.

In a pinch, you could use good quality masking tape, duct tape or similar to provide a buffer against damage. Cheap and easily obtainable.
I've taken to using a plastic art portfolio case to carry my "sensitive" DBA board around.

If you ever read White Dwarf you might have seen the 2' modular terrain boards made from a double layer of 1" polystyrene done by Paul Rudge (now no longer working for them, "market forces" having forced the evil empire to shed its best members of the workforce! ;) ). Take a look at his own site:
He uses good old-fashioned black duct tape and swears it is extremely hardwearing and neat

Any true Southron will use duct tape!
