Make Your Own Etch-a-Sketch Zen Garden Coffee Table [Video]

etchasketchtable

Make’s Caleb Kraft envisioned a project that combined a coffee table, Etch-a-Sketch and zen garden into an entertaining bit of functional decor.

The initial goal was to create a table that would employ two knobs to move a ball bearing through a bed of sand. This was accomplished by scaling up a previous “tracing device” project that was tweaked to fit Caleb’s vision.

The build is chronicled in the series of videos below jump which should provide all the details necessary for do-it-yourselfers.
