I've not heard anyone use that term for quite some time.
I think it should go on the stand next year at bett!!
Rite - dare i say this.
Providing i have the money, i would like to make one for Edugeek for BETT 2011. Thats if they want one?
I get the hardware back tho after it. So like a loan.
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!
Rite so - get a table and cut hole in top, mount screen in hole. Wack PC under the table off we go. What standards do we need to meet?
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.
and the superglue,
maybe a bit of sealant around the edges to make it look seemless!!
