Lego Table – for the big kids

Lego Table - for the big kids

Materials: Vika Amon Tabletop with Moliden underframe – along with several lego plates

Description: In addition to the table you will need 10 large Lego plates – and 4 Lego roadtop pieces. We used a circular saw to cut some of the plates in order to fit the table top.

After the pieces were cut-to fit, we took Lego plates and glued them to the outer edge of the IKEA table – be sure to use a lego brick to attach parts and keep the spacing accurate till it is all glued down. We glued our plates down with Elmers. The middle road section we left un-glued, so the kids could rearrange the road to their heart’s content.

Looking back, our only wish is that we got an IKEA table with removable drawers on it – that would make clean-up even easier.

  1. Great idea! I liked the kid versions too. We are not near an Ikea so here’s ours with a similar Walmart table.

    I love the idea, but I would add the drawers and under the roads add holes to the drawers so LEGOS could be easily shoveled in.

    Cutting lego to fit table….? You got it all backwards!

    Love the loose middle section, great idea.

    Nice! Regarding your wish for removable drawers on the table, you could mount some drawers/storage to the underside of the tables by browsing other hacks here. I’m sure I’ve seen some hacks here mounting trofast bins on rails as drawers on the undersides of tables. If you add anything like that, I’d love to see what you end up doing. Thanks for posting this!

  7. Ha I just made a lego table out of a ramvik table, yours is much more “big kid” but I didn’t have access to a table saw – so I had to find a table that would fit bases as is :) Very awesome table
