Table for the new train board

I was talking on the phone to vp last night about this and that. He mentioned that he saw some of the photos of the new layout and thought the workmate shown supporting the board in yesterday's post were its legs. No. Debra bought a nice little mid-50's end table at a thrift store a few months ago, and its been sitting in the basement ever since. It will be the stand when the layout's on display upstairs. Otherwise it'll be on shelf supports in the basement.

That little table looks like its had some rough handling from its previous owners. Its had paint dripped on it, someone signed their name on the top, there's a few gashes, and it's all loose and wobbly. In a few weeks I plan to fix it up a bit and hopefully return it to some of its former glory.
