I think most people are missing the point that this is a piece of a magic trick
so when he says Magic table, he means it.
its not supposed to be a full sized table...

Semms like someone just ripped this off, dfivx screenshots and no real instructions, pathetic.

this is a very cool device but i really cant figure out a use for it

author
wenpherd (author)ninjaknow2010-04-14

You could make it bigger.

ndinitz (author)ninjaknow2009-10-22

 um... use it to hide away your unfinished projects from people with distractable eyes. or better yet, when someone complains about your mess flip the table-top and voila! mess gone ;-)

Dinnertime. Mom tells you to do the dishes. Wait until she leaves the room, and FLIP! No more dishes!

6* definitely awesome noone can argue with that and if they can they are just negative and heartless.

cool but how do u make the frame

author
thinkdunson (author)2009-01-24

i've got it.

you make the split long-ways instead of width-ways so that there is less to swing, and put it smack dab in the center. then you can attach the cloth to the complete outer edge of both sides. full coverage and easier to swing without watching out for the fan!

plus you could use the idea i mentioned below by attaching the cloth to the surface near the center of the leaf that will be in the back, so that it'll pull it up and hide it better. or use a spring to attach it right on the seam so it can be tight when there's nothing in it, and stretch when there is.

author

You mean make both pieces spin, right?

TechNerd1012 (author)thinkdunson2009-01-30

thats a pretty good idea!

A picture's worth a thousand words, but some times you do need an explanation of your steps. This is really cool but it's really vague when you only have 3-4 words to go on.

PUT MORE INSTRUCTIONS

author
PKTraceur (author)2009-02-16

Hmm... great idea, really, but it need more instruction. (INSTRUCTables?) Im not sure about how the lock works, but I think I got the rest. -RoAr

What a great way to clean the table after dinner.

How did u make the frame?

author
Pell-Mell-Elle (author)2008-07-23

Nifty but needs refining. Also could do with some better aesthetics. I wouldn't want this in my living room. Even if you used better, more attractive materials I think it would be hard to make this one look classy.

author

not really... that's what trim was invented for. keep all the mechanics enclosed under the trim and you'd never see anything but a normal table besides the gaps between the sides. besides, there's always a table cloth to cover the whole thing. as long as the legs look good, you can't fail!

cybergenie (author)2008-12-30

Well, he SAID is was a magic table. Maybe the table frame is made with magic?

author
Dipankar (author)2008-07-21

GREAT IDEA , keep it up, Though it will be hard to make without proper instructions which it is lacking. Check out my Design Cutting Table with revolving top in craft Section.

No offense but I have to use your comment as an example. When you say "it will be hard to make without proper instructions which it is lacking" Obviously it can't be too hard because this guy made it without having an instructable for him to use. I see similar comments a lot on here and while I agree that a step by step guide makes things much easier, thinking it through enables you to learn a lot more!

author
Dipankar (author)trackstar04202008-12-26

I fully agree with you but---------------------------------------still...............................

Cool, I'm glad that didn't sound to a-hole-ish(is that understandable?) because I wasn't really even disagreeing with you.

Whoa! Very cool. Good job.

fritsie123 (author)2008-12-08

This is absolutely brilliant! Your instructables demonstrates that the human mind can and will come up with the most creative ideas. Perhaps there is hope for us all yet! :-)

author
Crash2108 (author)2007-11-08

Looks like the stuff would fall out of the sides, and the the table couldn't be too long, or it would have to be too high.

author

Unless you did it widthwise instead of lengthwise. It could be feasible then, although stuff falling out the sides might still be an issue.

author

But what if you added this idea as part of a larger project? Say, you built a side table to fit between two couches. This could be that feature you were looking for: even something as mundane as coasters could be magically revealed or hidden using this method.

that is genius. im going to make that, but ill incorporate it into being a box.

author
rick.leasure (author)F-zero2008-12-07

Yes, that is what I was thinking. Perhaps a drawer?

author
MattBurch1579 (author)2007-11-10

This isn't really a very instructive instructable.

author

Perhaps, but it opens the mind to a lot of options and ideas. I think it's a cool idea.

u solved the isheu of hiding porn magozines

author
Grey_Wolfe (author)2008-08-21

Could have the cloth go all the way to the end that doesn't move, instead of just to the seam. It'll still work the same, and it'll look a bit more refined. Over all, this isn't a bad idea.

IkilledKenny (author)2008-08-17

Honestly, I think the directional video was masterful. But I am one of those who can see something done like that and visualize how to do it myself without cut by number directions.. AWESOME IDEA and a great instructable.

Whiteboard Table
I have a simpler idea for a table: what about a whiteboard table? Just simply cut the shape to fit and screw it on so that kids can be entertained while adults eat in peace. Instead of wasting paper just wipe off after use.
