Children playtable

Trofast frames to play table

Materials: Trofast x’s 2, mdf, connecting hardware, glue, nails

Description: We used 2 Trofast frames and put them together according to manufacturers instructions. We connect them together using connecting hardware. We then cut mdf top to fit over both units with some hang over on each side then we cut strips to nail/glue underneath top to keep top from sliding off.

    The reason many of these kids size tables do not end up working as well as we thought is because we don’t think about optimal height for children’s play. If there is room for legs and chairs to go under this would be a great height. If not then you need to keep the height under 16.5″so that is a comfortable sitting height for little ones. Even for adults this is a good sitting height.

  2. Great to see your post here eventually

    great idea! but the Lego bricks on the floor made me assume that the table isn’t adopted by the kids yet :)
