I’m Mark Maloney, and I founded Roanoke Custom Gaming Tables.
I got into gaming back in 2011 when I moved down to Roanoke, as a way to meet new people. Over time, my passion for games grew and grew.
So as my collection got bigger and the games more complex, an everyday table just wasn’t cutting it anymore. Looking online for gaming tables, my jaw hit the floor from seeing the prices.
I figured I could build my own for a lot less.
So, I took my knowledge of wood working that I learned from my father and grandfather, as well as from the years spent in the wood shop in high school, and I set out to build my own gaming table.
With my friend’s help, we went for it! And boy, did we go big! After a few months of planning and construction, The ENCHANTER was born.
After that, as a wedding present to our good friend and leader of our board game group, we came up with our 2nd design, The MERRITT. Our goal for its design was to give him the gaming table that he always wanted, but as requested by his wife keep it the look of a traditional dining table. She was skeptical at the idea, but we won her over after she saw the completed product.
After making the two tables and receiving plenty of compliments and questions, I decided why not offer my services to anyone else that has been seeking a gaming table that they can actually afford. So Roanoke Custom Gaming Tables was born.
