I am looking for a good how-to to build a gimmicked table with a motor driven magnet underneath to move items across the table. Has anyone done and would be willing to share a how-to. I have several ideas (stepper motor, driver, etc.), but not sure they will work. Thanx!

I do it with 12v magnets with a small motor. I have a circle motion which is connected to a plate and motor underneath. The wired magnet goes under the table. You may have to put space between the magnet depending on the strength. Get something a bit more powerful if you move something heavy. I also have a candle slide with a pneumatic cylinder which slides back and forth at a slow motion. You want it flush, you can also put plexiglass on top if you want it to slide better or protect your table from scratching.
