Questions about how to make the daft punk table I am wondering how hard of a project this would be to take on.  A little information I have not built a great deal of things in my life and don't have any electrical background. I really want to make this though and have nothing but time at the moment. Does anyone think this would be doable without any knowledge of how to build LED boards and just trying to do it by the instructions? I only ask because I don't to go out and buy all this and than find out its way over my head, or also if anyone wants to give me a starter LED project I could try that first I just don't know where to find simple projects.  Thanks for your guys help and this truly is a amazing website.

Automated Jupe tableor Fletcher Capstan table

Hi! I recently stumbled across the fletcher capstan table design, which I have researched into, and found a lot of info on them and the basis for them, Jupe tables. Basically, it is around table which expands into a bigger round table, instead of into an oval table.Heres a link, what I would love to do is design a similar self-contained expanding round table, but one which is automated. From the videos provided on the site, I have come up with a half dozen or more ideas on how to make a similarly functioning table. I am not sure which, if any, of these approaches DB Fletcher uses. I also don't know if it would violate any patents or coprights or whatever to make one for myself, if I design it myself, simply inspired by how his works...?In any event, none of the ways I can think of to make it work seem easily automated. I'm just wondering if anyone here might come up with some ideas? If we can come up with something which I could build, I would love to document it and make an instructable!

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?
