This table was a 2 weekend project I made at my wife’s request for our daughter. the first weekend was to build the table and the second weekend was to paint the table.

The table is made from 1 sheet of maple plywood and is a glue and screw construction. It takes about 70% of that single sheet and leaves a nice left over chunk. The bins on the bottom are from Ikea and cost about $3 each. They hang from a set of plywood rails and allow for toy storage.

The entire table surface is 3 feet by 3 feet and it has a high of 18” I will hold 4 full sized Lego \ Duplo boards and still leave space for other pieces or smaller boards to be joined around them. There is a small lip around the surface of the table. This is just tall enough to keep a lego \ Duplo board from sliding off the table top

This was a very fun little project and the best part is my wife and I get to keep enjoying it daily as we play on its surface with our daughter

This is just great and well thought – drawers, slides, simple legs, raised edges, attractive colors. Hat’s off !

Very nice table and great (grape?) purple top. Love seeing all that storage right at the table.
