    Yeah sorry slim_boy I will have some mock up pictures soon.
    It's just a slab of joined together wood for a coffee table and all the mechanisms from a rat trap added to it.
    I dunno what I'm doing for the base yet but I do like an idea of wheels.

    Thanks man your too kind.

    I rebate out area for the copper to sit.
    Wells drilled for the fake rivets and holes to plug through.

    Brilliant work on the fake rivets! :thumbup: How did you form them? 'Blob' of weld then filed?

    Forever and a day it took to file out the holes to accept the elbows.

    Into holes go brass.
    They will pop when the alloy is blackened.

    After a little tweaking it's glued together.
    None of these welds are seen but I will blend in.

    Can't visualise it either, does the coffee table split in two?

    Amazing work mate.
