Lack LEGO table

Materials: Lack side table, trofast box and lid

Description: My godson is 5 and has an insane amount of Legos with Santa bringing a load more in a couple of weeks. To help with his mom’s sanity I’ve put together a cheap simple lego table for him to keep his current projects in one place.

I cut a hole big enough to sink the trofast box into the table and then glued two 10″ x 10″ green base plates to the top. Its important to remember to use bricks to make sure the plates are aligned before you glue them or the bricks won’t fit along the join

Total cost of project less than £20, similar lego table on amazon £113.
