Table top Marble run for the grandkids. Walnut, maple, cherry, bloodwood.
Marbles shoot to the top with spring tab (cherry) then the pivot at top routes marbles alternately side to side.
Marbles land at bottom after striking the bell and roll to the loading tab for next shot.
Fun little project for scrap wood. About 11 inches wide and 20 inches tall.

Well done.

What a fun project!

Here is a link to your video

There are 4 “buttons” just above the edit window on the left:

B is to make highlighted text bold
I is to make highlighted text italicized
The chain links button is the one you want – it assigns a url address to the highlighted text. (make sure there is a space after the url text)
img is for inserting an image after the cursor

The “show formatting reference” options next to the buttons has these instructions
