Cheers for the comments and input guys,
As I said this is a plog that's been transferred over so things have moved on quite a bit since those plans!
The work bench is now a small set of shelves (due to a concrete plinth resulting in moving the board), where the laptop sits, linked up to the wall mounted TV. The laptop is linked to my server so can pull up rules, e-codex's or just have a movie on in the background. The old glass fronted display cabinet has been sold to make way for my work bench and then additional storage cabinets on the long wall, these parts are not yet complete so you'll get them as updates once the backlog is cleared and I have actually done the work.
So first up is the beginnings of the actual gaming table:
The table is in actual fact a frame where 2'x2' tiles can be put in place and by having it as a frame when I get to building my city board I can sink canals etc. down from the board level, to create a real 3d effect. The tiles can also be replaced with blanks, then it can be used for board games like space hulk or to give more work space.
The initial board is an 8'x4' realm of battle board with build in tile racks, shelving, a die rolling tray and lay down area:

By saving the old kitchen table I was also able to create some in board storage....
As always comments, suggestions and questions always welcome.
