so I think I’ve found two ideas I need to ‘merge’ for this lego table. One is the display cabinet plan from This Old House, and the other is something like similar to a factory cart table over at Ana White's site because I was given the stipulation this table needs to be on wheels.
I laid out the train track today to see how large my oval can be and still give us walking room around the table. Looks like it will be 4 feet long by 3 feet wide. The couch itself is 20 inches high. It appears the display box itself needs to be 8 inches deep to be able to hold the buildings and for the lid to close. Guess I better see if I can pull something together in sketchup. One of my helpers posed for the pic :)
