I used a quick setting epoxy when I made my lego table.

also, a quick tip.
If you are gluing a few pieces to the board with spaces in between. build a bridge from legos to get the spacing right so you can connect them later with a tower if you want.

Dble sided tape. Removable when a better design becomes apparent.
design usually changes every 2 years advancing in concert with budding engineers.

Lego plates (all Legos actuallu) are made from ABS plastic, as are plastic shower surround materials. Buy a caulk tube of shower surround adhesive (I have used loctite power grab from Home Depot $5). Scuff the back of the lego plates with some sandpaper and apply the adhesive with a fine notched trowel and slap it on your wood ;) Gently press any lumps out. To date I’ve made 4 lego tables like this and it works wonderfully.

Have your say...
