Getting ready to set the base for the sand and wondering how far it should be between the floor and the glass. The entire table is 42x23 and I have about 5” of space between inside top of the base of the box and inside bottom of the glass. (Hope that made sense) I am planning on putting in LEDs in both the top and bottom areas so the Cool movement is also illuminated. I’m also planning to use a 1/2” ball, but not sure if that’s appropriate for this size of a box. I also know all of this is up to the designers ( which is something I love!), but would appreciate some advice for a starting point to work from. Worst part is that I am building this as a farewell gift to one of the finest (and pickiest) woodworkers that I know.
So my questions are:
- How far from the sand to the glass?
- How deep for the sand?
- Is a 1/2” ball the right size?
- Is 1/4” wood base too thick or thin for the base?
Thanks for the help!
