“The Periodic Table Table” — All The Elements in Hand-Carved Wood

In 2011, Theo Gray (co-founder of Wolfram ResearchPopular Science columnist, and element collector) won the ACS Grady Stack Award for Interpreting Chemistry for the Public. And here you can see why. In this clip, Gray introduces you to his DIY masterpiece – the world’s first “periodic table table.” Yes, we’re talking about a hand-carved wooden table that brings to life the Periodic Table, and lets you play with the elements. The project began back in 2002, and now, a decade later, Gray puts it on display in a video produced by the American Chemical Society.  H/T BoingBoing
