Lego Table


Longtime readers might remember that I received an awesome gift from Santa for Christmas of 2008. For various reasons it's looked like this since then.
Until today, that is.
I had a couple of good reasons to let my new toy out of its box.
First, my band saw was acting up and second, I had a really fun project to start.
In March there was a series of boy-related projects on Made By Rae called Celebrate the Boy. The one project that most caught my eye was an amazing tutorial for building a Lego table, which you can find here.
I bought the lumber a couple of months ago, but the days have been really rainy, and I had other projects both knitting and sewing related to finish up.
Yesterday I sent the family to the Lego store for our final supplies and this morning the Elder and I whipped this up.
It's basically a frame with feet, and it came together pretty easily (except some bad measuring that I did and then had to fix.)
It still needs painting, and maybe a little more sanding, but the kids are still very excited about it and the Younger is on his way to build right now.
What's on your to do list this weekend?

I just came across this project last week. Great job. I have two little boys that would be very excited by this table.

OMG! It's gorgeous. I can't wait to see it painted. Ours is still very popular around here. Funny thing is the chalkboard side is the current favorite. I recently bought some dry erase crayons at Office Max and they love using them. Since I varnished the table frame the dry erase gets used on the entire table, sides and everything! I just wipe it clean.
