My friend Mike wanted to build a train table for his daughter. My son had received one of the Thomas and Friends tables last Christmas so we used that as a basis to start from. It is made of Poplar with a removable MDF top and left unfinished at Mike’s request. Mike took the lead on this one and hung out while I did the dirty work, HAHA! He actually helped alot, mostly in making a mess of my garage! It has two full slide out drawers, and for some reason seemed like a real pain in the butt to build. Maybe it was just the pressure of it’s owner watching over my shoulder.

That is a very nice build. I am interested in your drawer work. We have to talk so you can give me some pointers on this.

Looks great.. I hadn’t come by here in a long while and as my wife has tasked me with building a train table for my son, figured I’d look here for inspiration. Looks fantastic. I also wanted to do drawers, but I think I’m going to do one large one along the long side of the table, only because the ends will be obstructed by other features in his room.
