Here’s the finished play table for my daughter’s room. It’s sized so that it fits over the open box that holds her toys. She picked out the colors. The rim on the back is to keep toys from rolling off the back.

It was finished with Benjamin Moore’s Advance Waterborne Alkyd Paint. I was very, VERY pleased with the quality of the paint and especially the ease of cleanup – you can hardly tell the brushes have been used. The top then got 4 coats of Minwax Spray Lacquer (the stuff in the can). Overall, I’m please with the lacquer – it was soooooooooooooo much easier/faster to apply than poly.

All the joints in the apron are mortise and tenon. My wife turned the legs on the lathe. The top is two poplar boards edge glued and pocket screwed in. I originally had no intentions of pocket screws, but simply didn’t have the right clamps to only edge glue the board properly. The top is attached to the apron via figure 8 fasteners.

Looks good and sounds like a well thought out plan.

Lovely table! Like the colors. I’m sure your daughter likes it and will get plenty of use for it. Great job!
