Looking forward to seeing this table complete, is this for a little kids toy train or HO style trains?
Also, you have a very nice work bench, did you do a blog on that build?

It’s for a little kids toy train. Thanks for looking Vince, I’m excited to see him use it. I did a blog on the bench build that starts here, I’ve never posted it as a project because I still haven’t finished it. I have been using it but still don’t have the wagon wheel vise built.
