This was an enjoyable project that I made for my grandson so that he could play with his Thomas Trains at a level were he could reach and enjoy from 360 degrees.

extra-nice work. looks like maple or birch. The ledge is a great design idea. Like a little wall around the play yard.

I was asked to build one for my Grandson just last week if you dont mind I will use your design. I have to ask is the top plywood? I can not tell from the picture. The sides and legs are solid maple right?

I am out of town, but will answer back this weekend… but a couple of comments… the design is from WOOD Magazine (I’ll get the issue number this weekend) that I modified slightly (I’ll measure to give the dimensions I used). I sized it for a Thomas the Train board that we had and were using on the floor (since it had designs and coloring of lakes, rivers, etc…). The board was bought at a hobby shop and I’ll give you the dimensions this weekend. Enjoy!

Great play center. My daughter asked me to build one so my wife went out and bought one so i wouldn’t slow down on her kitchen remodel.

Great table! I need to build one for my granddaughter so i will borrow some of your ideas. Just guessing, but looks about 15” high and solid maple or birch. Thanks for posting.
