I'm not having much luck with anything else, maybe I'll try this little wooden xylophone.

Not my cuppa, but definitely interesting.

But why not try something more simple? Like a small marble machine?

The wooden xylophone is definitely the biggest marble machine I have ever seen. First one using a wooden marble as well.

I wonder how long it was altogether?

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I googled it and it said that it was about 50 yards long. It looked even longer than that in the video. Did you look at the second video at the bottom about how it was built? And all to advertise a wood look cell phone.
