Bet that got your attention. lol

My wife told me the other day(4 or 5 months ago) that she wanted me to build a water toy table for our daughter. I finally got around to it and I'm pretty impressed with myself. I'm brand new to anything woodworking, so when I was done with this table and I saw how much my daughter liked it, I was pretty proud of myself.



The wife thought the sides weren't high enough so I just put some plywood strips in and it actually made the container fit a lot better.


Got it all painted up and clear coated.





She loves it!!!!

Indeed. I already have an order for another one so I will get to improve on the design a little this time.

The only judge you need is you and your family so its' a well executed project that serves the need. If I may add one very simple design improvement (and maybe you already did it but the pictures don't show it), drill a series of holes in the bottom because it is a water play area. I see the tub is well fitted into the table, but water flows like water and may get under the tub. Nice perfect choice on the color by the way!

Thanks. The wife picked out the color. I used a water sealer before I painted and I used a spray clear coat after I painted, but after the first time she used the table I knew I was going to have to drill some holes. I'll probably use a counter sink bit to make some cone shaped holes so I can still seal and paint the exposed wood.
