DIY Gravel Play Table

 On Sunday, the family headed to The Rebuilding Center, an awesome used building supply store located in Portland. We were in search of wood to build Finn a gravel table. And, for $4.80, we got what we needed to build the table, and we re-used some wood that was destined for a landfill.
Sunday afternoon Todd and Finn were hard at work putting the table together, and it has been a big hit with Finn. In the summer I plan to have it double as a water-play table by putting a shallow bin filled with water on top of the gravel.
