Apologies for the delay in getting episode 59 out.
It’s really a funny story, a captivating drama of miscommunication and human frailty.
We have, for instance, a freshly and inadvertently remastered version of episode 57, instead of an episode 59.
But, uh, check back Monday.
For real this time.
TL;DR – I replaced the removable trays with a french cleat system for more freedom in positioning trays and cup holders.
In Part 1 I explained how I made the original version of this table. The plans for the base table can be found on Ana-White.com. It’s a simple plan that doesn’t require anything fancy. You can cut everything with a hand saw if you want, or have Lowes do all the cuts for you. From there I added removable trays and a plexiglass panel/screen.

Behold! The everyman’s gaming table. Complete with mismatching stain, visible screws, poorly measured cuts and after-market mods.
I am not a professional, semi-professional or hobbyist wood-worker. I’m just a guy who sometimes builds things because I’m curious or because I need to. Also, this has been done many other times by other people, and much better. This is just the story of my own take on it.
I said in my last post that sometimes I randomly
receive visions from the Overmind come up with an idea and obsess over it until I do something about it. Well this is kind of one of those ideas. Continue reading →
Hello, Intarwebz! I recently posted this picture on Twitter and got some good feedback. One user asked me about how I got the lights in the clay, so I thought it would make for a good blog post. So here it goes! Continue reading →
This may be of interest to nobody, but here is my process for getting the audio of the game, from start to finish, including links to the necessary programs.
I am certainly a newb at this; so any suggestions are welcome. Nevertheless, I thought it might be useful for someone who’s thinking about getting into the podcast game to see what the entire flow can look like.
- Put iPad using the free Voice Recorder app as close to middle of table as possible
- Ensure app is recording in .aiff
- Record session, pausing and resuming as necessary
- Transfer to PC
- Dump .aiff file into Levelator
- Bring into Audacity (making sure the LAME mp3 encoder is installed)
- Export as mp3, indicating that it’s the raw (unedited) file
- Upload to Dropbox
- During the week, listen to mp3 on phone using the Dropbox app’s audio player
- While listening, if I hear something that needs to be edited out, take a screenshot on phone of the audio player application, making sure the timestamp is visible
- When the edit should conclude, screenshot again.
- Now I’ll have pairs of screenshots on my phone, each telling me when to stop and start an edit
- Highlight those sections in Audacity, delete.
- Export as final mp3 file, putting in ID3 tags when Audacity prompts
- Upload to Soundcloud for hosting
- Tag, insert shownotes while upload is going on
- When upload and processing are finished, share on blog, G+, etc.
- Soundcloud has easy options for getting your shows put into an RSS feed properly for iTunes, etc.
