Good vibrations Lack table

I laughed out loud when I received this hack from Tim, an artist.

He says, “It’s an art work I made a few years ago that would surely come within the scope of an Ikea Hack. It is titled: ‘Good Vibrations’. Materials: one Lack side-table top, four ‘ultra-smooth lite-up multi-speed stimulators’, one book ‘Great Railway Journeys of the World’.

The Lack table top proved ideal due to its lightweight but deep construction. The table was intended to vibrate slowly around the gallery floor but more powerful legs would have been required for this. It tended to vibrate loudly on the spot, sounding a little like a light aircraft about to take off. Sometime in the future I plan to make an up-market version using gold ‘stimulators’ and black/brown Lack top.

    It is very creative to make lack table to vibrate, but how fast it to vibrate?

    Just turn the table upside down if you don’t want to waste anything. Right side up for more prudish guests or for cocktails afterwards. The more clueless among them wouldn’t even know what’s down there.
