I've created a table for all the little robots featured on instructables to drive around on.
It has the height of a standard coffee table and is constructed from very basic and cheap materials.
The table has an elevated edge of 50mm to ensure that the bots don't fall off the surface.

For some examples of robots this table can handle you can check out the following links:

Drunken drawing robots: http://www.instructables.com/id/Drunken-drawing-robot-/

To make your own you need the following:
- wooden panels (OSB)
- small scews
- metal corner fasteners

- (electric) screwdriver
- table saw (or order the OSB panels with specific dimensions)

Step 1: Your tools

i made mine out of a log of wood
how do you get the markers to spin around??<br />
we used small vibrating motors and some flat batteries<br />
This shows the bots better - any video?<br /> <br /> L<br />
