This was the first project I did from Ana, and the plans and directions were excellent. My son is 20 months old with a Thomas the Tank Engine obsession....I had told my wife I would make a train table for him for Christmas and this was the one she found. The little man was extremely excited on Christmas morning, and it turns out I ended up building a babysitter in the process.

Built from Plan(s)
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Type of Wood
Poplar
Finish Used
I stained the project with Minwax dark walnut 2716 (2 coats). Each coat was rubbed on with a cotton cloth, and excess was then wiped off after 10-15 mins. I used Minwax fast drying satin sheen polyurethane (3 coats) to finish. I used a foam brush to apply the poly and sanded between coats with 400 grit sandpaper.
