tables

There are several Instructables I'd like to do but they involve tables, as in spreadsheets, not where the Thanksgiving turkey is the main course. What markup format do I use? I've tried the one used at the Wikipedia but it does not work.

Building A Table

So I want to build me a table for my patio. I found one that I really like, but I have some questions about it. The table is in the pictures below. Its legs are made of hard-fired terra-cotta, its a chimney flue. I was wondering if the table top would be sturdy enough on it. Like if someone was leaning on one end of it would thje other end raise up. Does any one have any suggestion for a nice table similar to this one, or something else I could use for the legs?

Tyre table

Hello I have an idea surrounding a racing car tyre which i was given for nothing, as a racing car fan i though this was brilliant. However after the novelty was worn off i came to the conclusion that i have nothing to do with it. I have came up with a use after about a year of it sitting at my parents house, i want to create a table based within this tire, the most basic thing i am wishing for this is a circle of glass to act as a table top, however this idea has developed and i would like to have this top removable if possible where there is another plate of glass on which i could put things, the final evolution would be for this table to light up also, preferable with its own power supply but if this is not possible then mains powered would be no problem. another option i was thingin is if the top of the table was able to be pushed down to turn off/on the light. If anyone has any suggestions of materials and/or components that i could use this would be a great help as i am stuck at the moment. I am unaware of even the typer of glass to use! LOL Many Thanks in advance for any help i receive Matt

Import from doc, markdown support, and tables

First of all, I want to say that overall, writing my Instructable was a pleasant experience. While I do have some suggestions, I enjoyed the process and felt that the site worked pretty well to allow me to build a good set of instructions. Kudos! I'm sure it's probably been suggested before or I could be missing something with the editor, but I would like to see a way to import from a word doc. I wrote up a lot of the details in a word document before writing my Instructable, and if I were able to import that directly it would have saved a lot of time. I was able to copy and paste, but it removed much of the formatting and I had to reformat sections. It would also be really awesome to be able to copy and paste markdown formatted text into the step instructions. Markdown is used by a lot of sites / software including github, thingiverse, confluence, and jira to name a few I know of off the top of my head. Finally, I really wanted tables in some of the steps to make lists of tools and parts cleaner / easier to read. If tables are supported, I wasn't sure how to create them.

Table migration at the Tower

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to witness a massive table migration near Squid labs. I would like to share with you some photos (View them at high-res for the full effect) of the event, and a few bits of information about this majestic animal.The March of the TablesMuch mystery surrounds the annual table migration around the bay area. The Wikipedia article has limited information, saying only " The table herd has previously been spotted at fisherman's wharf, the Google campus, and partying at various gay clubs in the city". The herd that passed near Squid was about 200 large, and composed of multiple table family units. Occasionally some drunk Alameda College students would come out to the runway at night for some "table tipping", but other then that the tables are usually left to themselves.

Clear Pool Table

Not only is this pool table pretty amazing for being see-through and having the same action as a regular pool table, it's also a senior project that has been turned into a real business. Personally, I'm still a sucker for the felt and not being distracted by all the slick rails underneath. Also, at AUS $40,000 it's deep in luxury territory.I still hem and haw about dropping a few bucks to play on a nice, clean table at a parlor and only get a few games a year in at a friend's house (thanks, Jeff!). But if you have pools full of cash, here's one for you. Link

Periodic table of condiments

Nope, that isn't a typo. You've heard of the periodic table of elements? Well, check out this hilarious table of condiments that periodically go bad. From Condiment No. 1 (Mayonnaise, which the table says goes bad in 3 months) to Condiment No. 75 (Maraschino, which apparently never goes bad), you can look up just about any condiment you can name to see when you need to toss it out. Or at least when these people think it goes bad.Take it with a grain of salt (Condiment No. 2, it never goes bad!) though-it claims Lemon goes bad in 2 months. Stuff and nonsense. I've eaten 3 month old lemons that were perfectly good.Mendeleev would be so proud...

Drafting table help...

My first Instructable was how to build a drafting table for $50, take a look to get a feel for the design. It does it's job just fine but I'd like to improve upon it. First of all, I don't really have a system to raise/lower the table- I've just been propping it up with boxes and stuff. I'd like to have something attached to the table so that it can easily be adjusted and I'll have a few less pieces to lug around. Second, I need to put a rail on the edge of the drawing surface to keep work and tools from sliding off. I found a small drafting table that I ended up giving to a friend with a rail like the one in the picture below. It's sort of like a metal ruler with L shaped holes in it for screws- so you can lower the rail if you don't want it in your way. Where can I get something like this- or would I be able to make one?

Outdoor Pool Table?

There are lots of used pool tables for sale for under $250. Any ideas for how to convert them for outdoor use? I'm thinking of just spraying the whole thing, except the felt, with a few coats of marine varnish. Then just keeping it covered. I live in the NW and of course it's mostly drizzly around here in the winter time. The big thing is keeping expansion and contraction to a minimum and sealing the wood. This doesn't have to be tournament grade, just something to entertain the kids for a few years.

Folding coffee table?

Hi instructable community. I am currently graduating, and I own a 484sq. feet (45m^2) apartment. I have the basics and am quite grateful for what I have. however, I belive that a coffee table is almost a necessity. The problem is that if the table isn't wide enough, it won't be of much use, and if it's too wide, it will occupy too much space and will be in the way. That's (hopefully) where you brilliant minded people come in. I was thinking about a folding coffee table that will be thin, and when I have company over, I pull on it or something and it widens up so it can comfortably hold a few glasses and maybe a book or too. I have added a few images of the area that the table will go. The couch is 2m in length (6.56167979 feet) so you can get a generall image of the room. The couch is on a slight angle, so the small plant can fit behind it (it's on a chair so it can get sunlight),  so I can move the couch around a little for a bit more room. Please keep in mind that I do not have many tools, but I know how to work with raw materials, It will just take a little more time (instead of an electrical saw, I have a hand saw. Same job, takes longer). Also I don't have alot of spare money and I can't find "special" items (for example, ball bearings, and pivot and swirlly stuff are out of the picture). I know it sounds quite bizzare but I would like some help. It doesn't HAVE to be a foldable table, but I would prefer it to be, because the couch is also a bed, so if someone comes over for a couple days, I need to be able to "hide" the table to open up some space.  Worst case scenario, I'll make a small(ish) chest that will double as the table. Thank you for your time reading this message. I will be glad to hear from any of you!

Periodic Table of FAILURES

Hello everyone!! It has been a while since I have posted anything but I am back. So, I am currently a freshmen in high school, taking block science. I just started chemistry and was very excited having prior knowledge and love for it. The teacher give  us a paper with the Periodic Table of Elements on it. It was made by the Navy with a bunch of pictures of ships and what-not. So it seems legit. BUT, after closer inspection I discover this is as accurate as a un-modded Nerf gun. Many errors, ranging from spelling of elements to incorrect symbols and more.          So I issue a challenge. Since I have only knowledge of Chemistry I hope that here on Instructable's there are people who know it from the back of their head and can and will find the errors in this catastrophic table. I am posting a picture of it for you to investigate, if you need it to be clearer or anything else just ask. I am very curious to see what else on this is wrong. I have already marked and fixed a few errors with a pen, but I want to see if there are more!

Resin table top

Hello, I want to fill my beer bottle cap table in with clear resin and I am wondering how much resin i will need. I have done the math myself but I think I may be wrong. The table is 85"x36"x.25" (has trim up to the cap height) If i did the math correctly I will need 2 gallons of resin. I just want to confirm before I buy $120 worth of resin. The beer bottle caps are roughly 1"x1"x.25" and there are about 2300 of them. so what i did for math was 85x36 = 3060 (x .25) = 765. 765 / 12 = 63.75 square feet 1 gal of resin covers 32 square feet 2 gals needed correct? but then i tried to plug in how much space the caps take up and if i can get away with just 1 gal. so 2300x.25 = 575 square inches 575/12 =47.91 square feet 63.75-47.91 = 15.84 square feet which means 1 gal of resin would be plenty..... am i doing this math correct? thanks for the help!

Flexible bedside table?

As I mentioned in another post, I'm working on a nightstand/shelf with a built in dock for my iPod. Besides getting that to work, another challenge I'm facing is finding a way to cram that shelf into this spot at the head of my bed. At the end there is what, in denmark at least, is known as a "french balcony", which is basically a door leading nowhere. The trick here is that I would like a shelf spanning the entire width of the door, to place books, my phone, speakers, cups of water etc. but I still need to be able to open that door slightly to cool things down in the summer. I have a few ideas for how this could be done, but I would really like to hear if anybody here has any suggestions on clever ways to go about this.

Portable change table

We are running in partnership with other agencies and the City of Toronto, Parks Forestry and Recreation an accessible swim program for people with physical disabilities. Many of our participants require that they change in a lying down position and thus require a "change table". At this point we are looking at two locations that require this. Challenges include storage as storage space is of high premium at the pools. It would have to be at a height that would be comfortable for the support staff. It should be wide enough to be able to turn a person on their side safely. Sturdy enough to be able to handle up to 350lbs safely. Should be folding (for storage), and have wheels that lock so it can be moved easily. We assume wood is the best material for this (or easiest to work with), but we are open to suggestions. It should also be long enough. We have not come with specific numbers (how many inches/cm wide or high e.g.). For this some of us involved in this program need to discuss the details. However, you may have some questions too, so if you let us know we can provide answers to your questions. A few years we purchased a portable massage table. However, it is not wide enough to accommodate some of our participants with being turned safely.

Periodic table closet

Hi, I'm 22 years old and I am in my master studies of chemistry. I thought would be a good time to start a collection of elements. I also want to display them properly. like in some sort of closet that you can hang to the wall. It is hard to type down where I am thinking of. The added image below is something like what I want (but in this picture they apparently forgot the Lanthanides and Actinides). How would you tackle to make something like that? I think wood is a good choice for material here (but please correct me if I'm wrong). I have a limited amount of experience of working with wood, but I figure the horizontal and vertical walls should slide into each other to make the grid. But I cannot figure out how to attach the grid to a sturdy back plate, or how to have smooth outside edges without wood sticking out to form the grid. I hope my explanations are some what clear. my explanation cortex seems not to be fully up to speed today. thank you in advance for you advice.
