This a splash table for my son. My wife mentioned she wanted one, and instead of buying a plastic one, we decided to build one to match our bench. It’s made from left over 2×6 PT pine milled to size, then finished with Behr Premium Outdoor Wood Finish, Slate, solid color. The tub is just a simple storage bin from Wal-Mart.

looks like fun!! have you tried “PUD”? It is a mixture of flour salt and water that is solid it you press hard but will flow through your fingers if you move slow. Cleans up with a hose. really fun. Kids even like it!!

Nice job. When your son out grows the splash table you can put a bigger top on for all the train track your gonna build.

Nice one David. Rob, you got the ratios for that PUD? I googled and could not find it. Got mostly “PUDding”.
