this table was built about three years ago. it’s solid red oak with minwax golden oak stain and antique oil hand rubbed stain. Was to be a just coffee table. But the idea changed after I visited a train show. I had no concept of model trains. it has working street and stop lights. trains run around and throu tunnels and throu village. it has been a on going project always adding new things. Two matching end tables. Tables glass top was removed for pictures.

A beautiful way to display your train set, & that Red Oak is one of my favorite woods, very nice finish. I’m not sure, but is that coffee table height, or what? Also Welcome to Lumberjocks!

Very neat idea. I know some children that would spend a lot of time leaning over that coffee table. For that miatter, I might too…

Thanks Dick. the table is 42” sq. and 21” high each corner below is storage with doors and drawers and magazine storage on drawer sides

Thanks rookster, that’s a problem all the kids big and little want in it

Actually, this is a totally cool concept. Wonderfully built.

Marty.
It would be nice if you added more stuff. I think they might be getting tired of all the stuff I’ve entered.

Thats pretty cool Marty! Very original. Good thing you didn’t start out building a dinning room set you would have ended up with a full scale city.

Marty, you are lifting the bar a long way. And you do six projects a year. Wow! Do you do woodworking full time? I read your profile where you say you’ve been doing this for twelve years. The two projects you’ve shown are fantastic, and by my standards massive undertakings. Please keep showing us your work – it’s very inspirational.

Don, No I’m a full time Remodeling/Building Contractor in Mineral Ridge, Ohio. The last of a in area to have in house crews. Work been slow here, so a lot more time for shop work. You know the project aren’t that massive, simple in most standards, basic skills at most, just creative ideas.

This is great, brings back memories of my Lionel train from my childhood. The last I saw of it, it was thrown in a cardboard box under about 6” of water in my kid brother’s basement. It’s so sad that the younger people do not respect anything from the past.
Keep Up The GREAT Work
