    And now you tell us you have a midi-horse!

    I've not heard anyone use that term for quite some time.

    Then the tables are very cheap!!

    i think we should take it to smart and ask why they charge 4/5 grand for something we can make for 550 quid!!

    It won't have the same effect in the Hotel lift though as the SRIAB

    As for the software comment, just use Smart Notebook that has a lot of those in

    Sounds like an interesting project. Problem is, you could never produce them commercially, as there's all sorts of approvals and health and safety type stuff for anything containing electrical items, and I doubt a fibreboard table from Ikea meets any of them. Could warrent further investigation thou. . . . .

    Are you kidding? I'm in!!... (non-commercially, obviously!)

    I'm pretty sure if nothing else we could find out what materials are actually allowed and then go a little crazy with the old power tools...

    This kind of thing would blow the kids minds at school... Heck I could probably find a local sponsor to cover the costs too... Now my only problem is how to stop my Grandfather and Dad sticking their oars in and laughing like schoolboys all over again.. Oooh the possibilities



    Oh and the bit about the screws working themselves loose... If you get a couple of corner brackets and screw them upside down ('L' like) at the right height on the inside/opposite legs (ie: "back" of the table) they could support the weight and stop the screws taking the overburden caused by leverage.

    we could make the kids do all the hard work, e.g design/making sure meets H&S standard and then we sell it and make the money!

    Speaking from my experience as an Ikea hacker, I would just like to warn you that the table top is likely to be hollow... so therefore not that strong if you cut it up.

    maybe a bit of sealant around the edges to make it look seemless!!
