How it’s made
It was conceived by the Ballcraps team, and the prototype was built in Brooklyn by a local woodworking shop.
The tabletop is made of two plexiglass sheets: The bottom sheet is CNC-etched with the table design, while the top sheet serves as a clear protective cover (removable for easy cleaning of spilled beverages). The tabletop is fully lit along the bottom edge by a single strip of white recessed LEDs.
The table was designed to be entirely fabricated on a CNC machine, with only wiring and finishing operations required for production. The tabletop housing is built of a single CNC-machined MDF sheet. The table frame and legs are also simple CNC-machined MDF boards and are detachable for easy flat-pack shipping.
The CNC tech
The CNC machine (computer numerical control) is a computer-controlled routing machine. We used AutoCAD to create stereolithography files of the design and used ReplicatorG to produce the G-code instructions that the CNC machine reads for toolhead paths. (The paths are the “plan” for where to cut, similar to an etch-a-sketch.)
