    • Laminated plywood for strength
      • Laminated
      • side view
      • assembled
    • unistrut for railing
    • use modular furniture clips to hold parts together
    • tensioner design

        • reconsider table design
      • look at belt, it is on the table
  • Electronics

    • enclosure?
