Minimalist - Deposit
A modern antique.
Make a statement, not a speech.
Solid lines and a natural finish, architectural corners, and a strong square body describe a profile that is stylish and sculptural, but doesn't require its own game room. The Minimalist is a dining table with depth. (Specifically the depth you'd need for war gaming, minis, collectibles, and all the sandboxing you could possibly ask for.) Lean and cultivated, the only nod to ornament is a richly angled cutaway of the legs-- an optional removal that enhances beauty without compromising integrity or strength.
If you have always desired the functionality of our dining tables, but longed for more aesthetically modern lines, this is your table.
The Minimalist takes its cues from The Spartan, except it was designed for your dining room instead of your war room. Gamers with taller miniatures or a penchant for multi-tiered terrain may find this an excellent choice-- a little more family-friendly, but still cutting edge in terms of looks.
Every Minimalist includes:
- Choice of 10 sizes
- Choice of wood
- Conversion varnish
- Game Vault System
- Hardwood Leaves (length-wise)
- Vault depth choice of:
- 2 1/4", 3 1/4" or 4 1/4"

- Rail System docking rails

GEEK KNOWLEDGE: Stain? Not if we can help it!
FAS grade lumber is the top industry standard grade of lumber used for high-end furniture. Being the wood geeks we are, we have a created a specialty "Geek Chic grade" of even higher quality lumber that does not need to be stained. (Although you may add-on stain should you choose.) All the images you see on this website are not stained unless specifically stated. You are seeing the quality of our lumber with a clear conversion varnish sealant-- no stain is covering up inferior grades of wood!
Conversion varnish is the clear finish most commonly used in the high-end furniture market. This unsung hero of the finish world is extremely durable, and rated for heavy use. Its a little tricky to apply, but it is worth it. Unlike lacquers and polyurethanes, conversion varnish is completely water-resistant, so you needn’t worry about water, wine or hot beverage stains!Conversion varnish is also a dream to clean-just use mild soap and water and a non-abrasive cloth. Gamer-proof!
GEEK KNOWLEDGE: Household Chemicals Tests show that conversion varnish has no visual effect from Household Ammonia, Vinegar, Lemon Juice, 50% Ethyl Alcohol, Red Ink, Oil Base Paint, Latex Emulsion Paint, VM&P Naphtha, Turpentine, Orange Crayon, Carbon Tetrachloride, 10% Sodium Carbonate Solution, Water, or Grease--Conversion varnish is a superior coating to any brand of varnish, lacquer, or polyurethane!
The Game Vault is where your games and maps are kept safe, flat, and spill/cat/people-resistant. Keep your game safe and in progress with this deceptively simple and infinitely useful system of layers.
A set of hardwood leaves (lid), the transparent layer (with suction cup to lift it) and a white vault floor are included. The remaining layers are game specific add-ons.
Extra Deep Game Vault
The Minimalist's vault depth can be 2 1/4'', 3 1/4'', or a full 4 1/4'' deep depending on your gaming needs.
Open the MINIMALIST PRICING GUIDE for more information on these alternate layers under the Leaves and Lids & Insets pages.
HEIGHTYour Valet will ask your height and the heights of your group in order to get the perfect fit. We offer dining table heights every half inch between 29" and 33".
RAIL SYSTEMThink of the Rail System as Geek Chic's utility belt for your table. Light weight rail accessories attach anywhere along the Rail Groove in your table. This system allows for the ultimate in quickly reconfiguring to suit your game.
