« Part 1: The Plan Part 2 of Train Bed series Part 3: The build »

The first step I wanted to do was to lay it out. I took a scrap piece of cardboard and made a life side drawing of the proposed train bed. I wanted to see the true proportions so that if something looked wrong I could change it now instead of regretting it later.

This is the more detail sides but will actually be the easiest to build. The hard part will be the front and the top, which will and some curves to it and will use some bending plywood.

Here is the recorded video of the layout.
