Introduction: Knex Table
OK, so this is my first instructable so be nice, OK? Today I will show you how to make a table out of knex. This table can hold at least 6 lb. of weight with wheels on and more with out them.
Step 1: Pieces
Here are the pieces you will need:
63 yellow rods,
4 red corners,
25 white snowflake connectors,
28 red rod,
1 tan end,
4 grey ends,
29 yellow half circles,
36 white rods,
44 3-d purple half circle connectors,
18 3-d blue circle connectors
84 small green rods
336 pieces total
for the wheels, you will also need,
12 grey ends,
12 orange connectors,
9 small rods,
3 red rods,
and 3 long rods, about 7.5 inches or 19.1 centimeters.
Step 2: Table Top (center)
To build the table top, you use all the white snowflakes, all white rods, all small green/black rods, some yellow half all red corners, 4 grey ends, and 8 purple 3-d clip pieces. For the center, you will need the snowflakes, white rods, and the small rods. You will connect the snowflakes into a 5x5 square and will connect the snowflakes with the green rods. Then, you will put the white rods in between the snowflakes diagonally. Your center is done!
Step 3: Table Top (frame)
For the frame, use the rest of the white rods collected for step 2, the red corners, the yellow half circles, the tiny rods,the 4 grey connectors, the 3d half circles and get ready to build. First connect the 3d connector together . Then you lay out the frame by putting a corner, 2 yellow connectors, 3d block, 2 yellow connectors, then the red corner and fill in where they connect with small rods. One side is done. repeat and make all sides equal. Then put small green rods straight out pointing at the middles, and stick white rods diagonal to the connector.
Step 4: Put It Together
Just stick them together, pretty self explanatory.
Step 5: Building the Body
Okay, to build the body, use all remaining pieces. You need to combine 3 blue x blue 3d, 12 blue x purple, and 12 purple x purple. Then just connect like in the picture for the center level. The second picture is the first level. The third is the top level.
Step 6: Wheels (optional)
This is only if you want the wheels on the bottom. They are removable. Use 12 grey ends, 12 orange connectors, 9 small rods, 6 wheels, 3 red rods, and 3 long rods. About 7.5 inches long or 19.1 centimeters. Follow the pictures.
Step 7: Putting It Together
Okay, now assemble according to photos.
