Imagine you are 2 years old and love Thomas the Tank Engine. You wake up xmas morning to rush downstairs and see your brand new wooden train set all set up. Yet wait, there are no engines or cars. Eventually as you tear through your presents you find Thomas, James, Percy, Annie and Clairabel and some others to play with.
So this is my sons new play table. My wife requested it match the existing family room furniture which is oak with mahogany, hence the mahogany accents on the sides. The underside is great storage for toys, shoes, etc.
The table is built entirely from 2 sheets of oak plywood with some mahogany scraps making up the “legs”. The top is 3’ by 5’ of playable surface and the entire thing is treated with Deft Danish Oil. The doors are 1/4” oak plywood.
I brought it upstairs (through 18” of snow outside) today and my son spent 20 minutes touching and feeling every aspect of it, he is clearly a wood lover too.
