So a friend of my sons asks me could I make a storage shelf for all his toy trains and I figured that a unit in the shape of a train would be awesome .

It’s basically built with plain old 1×3 lumber and it’s held together with a series of dados that shelves fit into it.

Each shelf has 2 groves cut into it mimicking Train tracks so as they don’t fall out.

And it’s just all held together with glue.

Thanks for looking

That is the perfect design for Thomas the Train. My Grandson would love something like this for his set. Mind if I copy your Idea :)
