I saw andy needles table along time ago and always wanted to try one. My niece wanted one and we found these thin cut stones and i thought what about lights underneath to shine on the lower shelf and up threw the stones. Sorry the picture is so bliurry but I don’t have a tripod for the darker pictures. This is actually a practice table, Hers is going to be a little longer and a few changes for the stones and the lights.We found the stones at a flea market but you can find them on the internet, they are about a quarter inch thick, hold them up to the light when choosing them.

Great looking night light.

And table can you post a picture of where the rocks. How much space is between the edges of the rocks and the wood.

That would probably be cool with quartz where the light would go through the rocks. Or is that what you have?

Where did you get the thin cut stones? What kind of lights did you use? Can we see a top view? So many questions…...Sorry!

I like this unique project and it looks good too.

I used a short string of christmas lights but had to make a cord out of an old vacuum cleaner cord. You can find these stones at flea markets and craft stores,or on the internet.

Have your say...
