a Lite-Brite coffee table

this is unique one from tay. a Lite-Brite coffee table. who would have thought!


what tay did was: “i cut open the top panel of a ramvik coffee table, and secure under it 2 custom-drilled peg boards, which now are the perfect fit for Lite-Brite pieces. inside the coffee table are two fluorescent black light bulbs, which when plugged in illuminate the Lite Brite pegs perfectly.”

    As awesome as it is, I wouldn’t really call it unique. ReadyMade Magazine did an article on making a table almost exactly like this a few years ago. They made the table from scratch, though, so this is a bit different. :)

    be sure not to operate this table in or near boston. it’s quite possible they will call the bomb squad.
