Seen many times on this site, but so simple and beautiful ...

Step 1: Bill of Materials

  • sheets of wood, thickness 10mm
  • round mirror, diameter 42cm
  • one-way film mirror
  • a round glass top, diameter 47 cm
  • adhesive bumpers
  • table legs, 40 cm
  • neoprene glue
  • glue gun
  • screws
  • electric wires
  • casual tools

Step 2: The Table Design

Step 3: Cut the Wood

I used a CNC router, but i can be done with casual tools

  1. cut a 47cm diameter plain wood round
  2. cut 2 circles, 47 cm outer diameter and 42 cm inner (refer to the 3D design)

That's it ;-)

Step 4: Paste...

  1. Paste the 2 circles on the plain round plate, I used neoprene glue
  2. Paste the mirror inside (neoprene glue)
  3. Paste the led strip around (glue gun for the led strip)

Step 5: Fix the Electronics

  1. Make a small hole on the side of the table to let pass electric wires from the led strip
  2. Fix the arduino UNO under the table. I've used a 3D printed mount (https://www.tinkercad.com/things/6GCFMztirR3-arduino-uno-r2-mount). But you can also fix with a glue gun.
  3. For wire connections between led strip and arduino, please refer the adafruit site. It's well done and clear.

-> you will find there explanations for the led strip, how to use it, and examples for arduino

-> I didn't use the recommended capacitor

-> I power the led strip from the arduino, and not an auxiliary transformer

-> the arduino is powered with an USB cable and a +5V phone charger, it is enough

So to resume : I only need an arduino UNO, a USB cable, a phone charger and the led strip

Step 6: Fix the Table Legs

- Do you really need an explanation to do this ? lol

Step 7: The Glas Top and the One-way Mirror

This is the most expansive part of the table

- I've ordered it from a factory and it costs, arround 110 euros for a "securit" glass and 40 euros for a standard glass

- Fix the one-way mirror on it, it is tricky, not easy, follow the instructions of the box and be patient

- Fix adhesive bumpers and place the glass top on it

That's it, your table is ready to impress your friends :-) :-) :-)

<p>This is one of the best things I've ever seen.... I want several! </p>
<p>So cool, I do love those infinite gadgets, but this in table form. Wow very nicely done :)</p><p>Found something cool on kickstarter that would go amazingly well with this project! The <a href="https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/fridgefire/esplight-cheap-open-source-wifi-led-strip-controll" rel="nofollow">EspLight</a>. Lazely controll it from your phone and it change the table to the mood you are in, with ease.</p>
<p>what's the arduino for ?</p>
<p>Nice instrucTABLE :)</p><p>I made <a href="https://www.instructables.com/id/Infinity-mirror-and-table-With-casual-tools/" rel="nofollow">one</a> myself a couple months ago I'm glad to see them popping everywhere</p>
<p>well done ! </p>
That's awesome !!!! I love cool colors mixed. Lol
I mean, yes pretty nice ! (eporte)
Yes !
so cool! I love infinity mirrors! did you think about using window privacy mirror film and sticking<br>it onto some plexiglass? it might take a little work but is a lot cheaper than your security mirror.
