Experiment 06: Yanking Tablecloths and Other Near Disasters
Here, you start with the classic whip-the-tablecloth-out-from-under-the-place-setting stunt. It never gets old, and we’ll show you how to do it. Then, you scale it up to even more impressive tricks-using eggs, glasses full of water, and finally, chain reaction of dropping golf balls.

Get all the details on how to do this yourself in our book, How to Build a Hovercraft.
