Custom End Table With Built-In CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND-Themed Train Layout

By  | 


Peter Waldraff has made this amazing and cool custom end table that features an amazing built-in Close Encounters of the Third Kind-themed train layout. At first glance, this is just an awesome-made end table, but when the UFO top rises, you see a model train set with Devil’s Tower in the background.

The builder of this amazing set said:

I built an end table with a rising table top that reveals and holds a N scale micro train layout inside. The layout is powered by a 6 volt rechargeable battery. The table works using a weighted pulley system. The layout inside rotates so all 360 degrees can be seen. When the train is not in use the table top can be lowered and the table looks like just a fine piece of furniture.

Waldraff says that he recreated a very cool scene from the movie with this design:

I tried to recreate the scene where he was sitting at the train crossing. In the background, I have Devil’s Tower and above the Mothership. This layout’s supposed to take place at night. Of course, the UFO lights double as lighting for the train on the other side.
