Prop master Harrison Krix has outdone himself this time. What begins as a replica Skyrim shield—and an impressive one at that—soon evolves into something a lot more practical.

Built originally for a convention, the shield— which we've briefly seen before—soon became a problem when it couldn't easily be stored. Rather than bin it, or sell it, Krix did the smart thing and did more work on it, turning it into the best gaming table I've ever seen.

While it looks like it's solid wood, it's actually foam sandwiched between some luan board. It's thanks to some skilled carving and a fancy paintjob that it looks so "real."
