We found a good deal on a train set for our kids but needed the obligatory table to go with it. Prices for a well-built one were ridiculous and the cheap ones were just that. Perfect project for some leftover Ash that I had in the shop. This would actually make a good general use play table as well. The 3/4” MDF play surface is supported by a series of cleats. Top frame is butt joined with biscuits. All edges that kids would contact are rounded over with 1/4” roundover bit. Finish is a few coats of wipe on poly except green paint for the top.
The legs are bolted on so that you can add a longer set of legs as the kids grow to keep it at a comfortable height.
