Info: My Dejarik table (sort of)

I either can’t afford the Star Wars stuff I’d like, or they’re not available, so sometimes I just make things. I’m not the most talented at crafting, but I do what I can.

I had an old beat up stool with lots of dings that I was using as a plant stand, so it had stains on the top. I thought about tossing it, but needed a small table for my drink in the movie room, so I repurposed it. I wanted ot make it more Star Wars, so my girlfriend used her decal machine to make me a huge dejarik sticker for the top of it.

I’d been using it for a while when I had a new idea. Does anyone else remember the dejarik table in the original Millennium Falcon toy? For some reason it was blue and the board was yellow and brown.

I thought it would be fun to emulate that version, so I got to work. I removed the old sticker, sanded everything down, and painted a few coats of blue. My girlfriend made me a new yellow and brown top for it and here we go.

I still need to put on a couple coats of poly to protect the surface, but I’m happy with it. Most will probably think it’s just some strange looking thing, but I know the story behind it, so it’s special to me.

That’s an awesome idea! I bet with all the 3-D modeling and printing available these days you could probably find someone who makes dejarik monsters. And if they’re 3-D printed, you could have them printed at the appropriate size for your stool…

Holochess Prop Replica Statues limited edition, from Regal Robot (probably expensive)

Han: Hey Lando! You kept your promise, right? Not a scratch?
Lando: Well, what’s left of her isn’t scratched. All the scratched parts got knocked off along the way.
Han (exasperated): Knocked off?!

^From Regal Robot, there’s no “probably” about it. They will certainly be expensive (especially the limited to 77 sets signature edition). But if their reputation is anything to go by, they’ll also be very accurate and very high quality.
