« Part 5: A question-- Felt surface for the table. Part 6 of A Thomas the Tank Engine table series no next part

This is a view of the initial drawing I did for Paul’s table.

This is the SU drawing realized in pine and MDF

A blurry (sorry about that) shot of a cross section of the moldings which were a last minute addition to the table design. I never did go back and update the SU model.

Paul didn’t get away from working for his table. Here he is properly attired to minimize damage to the clothing budget (yes he did get paint on what little he was wearing LOL). His big sister helped as well, she is a lot more persistant and painted the other 3 legs.

Had a bit of a gremlin when I placed the legs so they are uniquely positioned and not symmetrical so I needed to identify each leg and and corner uniquely.

The finished table. The surface of the table is covered in green felt (Jenn works at a fabric store and got a really good deal :-) and the casters were another last minute modification. The last bit of decoration was several Thomas characters cut out of a catalogue and spray adhesived ( is that a word?) onto the edges to make it a “Thomas” table.

Cool, looks like you got a good little helper there. I bet he looked like a smurf by the time he was done. Nice job
