Playing with your food at the dinner table is a thing of the past once you've seen this Marbelous table from Ontwerpduo. No longer will you yearn to fling peas or start a mashed potato war, but instead, take a time out and and play with the table itself. Check out the video of this crazy feat of woodworking in action, after the jump!

Making a table is hard enough, but making one that has secret marble passageways is a while new level of thinking. Through the top and down the legs, the balls stay in motion until choosing one of three paths to find their final resting place. The table was built to bridge the gap between children's toys and adult furniture and has won several awards for its function and beauty. Check out more on this great piece over at ontwerpduo.
