So I'm selling it at an estate sale scheduled for the 3rd, 4th and 5th of August in Portland (see ad link).
I actually have two tables for sale. The main one is 51" x 99" (124 x 251 cm, slightly smaller than a standard ping-pong table). The smaller one (which I originally built for my daughter) is 30"' x 40" (76 x 102 cm). Both have been emptied of sand. You'll have to fill them yourself, but it makes it much easier to transport.
So if you are in the Pacific Northwest of the U.S. that weekend (3-5 Aug) and want to purchase a great sand table (or two), come to the estate sale in Portland. Address to be provided on the sale's web page. Because of the nature of estate sales, I'm told that there can't legally be advanced purchases.
Also, you'll have to provide your own moving and shipping.
As you can see, it also has four wing shelves for keeping dice, reference, and off-table accessories. And there are racks underneath for hanging ranging batons.
I'm also selling (separately) in the same estate sale, several thousand unpainted metal soldiers in 5mm, 15mm, and even a few in 54 mm scale. Periods cover Ancient, 18th century, Napoleonic, and Civil War.
My painted collection I'm keeping, sorry.
There will also be quite a lot of scale trees for sale (15mm and 5 mm scale).
Below I've included some greatest hits photos of the table at its glory. This first one was a section of Gettysburg (the Peach Orchard) set up in 1992 with 15mm figures.
Battle of Mollwitz 1741, diorama from 2001 with 5mm figures
Battle of Chotusitz 1742, diorama from 2000 with 5mm figures
Marengo 1800, diorama 2004 with 5mm figures
Gettysburg 1863, diorama 2006 with 5mm figures
And here are shots of my daughter's smaller sand table, also for sale.

When she was 12, my daughter recreated The Ten Commandments on her sand table (below). The pyramids, the deadly Plague on the First Born (upper left), Pharaoh pursuing the fleeing Israelites (center), the Pillar of Fire, the Parting of the Red Sea (upper right). 2003
I hope someone buys these tables. Some avid miniature wargamer with room. And the unpainted figures. They have brought me countless hours of pleasure. It would be a shame for them to go to waste.
Of course, I'll continue to publish Obscure Battles. Working on a new one even now. So don't despair. Or go ahead and despair, just not about this.
Again, the estate sale will be held on 3-5 Aug in Portland (or Tigard, to be more precise).
