Just look at this gorgeous periodic table lamp! So colorful. So sciencey. It’s even up to date! Instructables user makendo notes:

“This instructable documents my efforts to reimagine a 3D periodic table of the elements, using modern making methods. It’s based on the structure of a chiral nanotube, and is made from a 3D printed lattice, laser cut acrylic, a lazy susan bearing, 118 sample vials and a cylindrical lamp.”

Head on over to Instructables to learn how the 3D periodic table lamp was made. Just keep it mind that it isn’t easy, and that’s not even taking sample collection into account. The version in the tutorial only has 20 samples so far.
