this is a concept i came up with 2 years ago and it just came to life through a collaboration with soma interiors & tom sawyer enterprises here in abq. it has great potential and there are many variations we plan. cnc’d ply, then i glue all the ‘slices’ together to make the form. hope everyone enjoys…feedback always welcome. bom dia

Very cool design. I get it weighs a ton.

Have you thought about doing it as a hollow form? Might be more cost effective if you want to use more exotic woods.

thanks for sharing

I like the concept.
what would you think of cutting the middle section of plys even at the bottom to give the table 4 feet instead of two. I wonder if that would give it a lighter feel. just a thought…

Cool design, I can think of 25 other variations already… the entire alphabet. Thanks for posting!

You could also throw in some of the new colored ply that is on the market. I do agree with the others that you need to figure a way to reduce the weight/waste. If you continue to use the CNC, then you can make the outer 2 plys on each side solid, and then the inner plys can be done with a hollow area.

nice, agree with the rest. don’t hollow out too much, need some weight for heft. too light and may seem cheap. Would leave out the 2 knots on the side.
good work.

I like the background furniture too.

Nice table. It looks like it would look great paired as “mirrored images”.

Nice looking dog too.

How many sheets of plywood did it take to make it? A few years ago I saw a whole desk that was made in a similiar manner, but with a lot of curves, in a museum in New York City. So you are on to something.

The possibilities are bouncing around in my mind for this construction method. Thanks for giving me something else to ponder.

Great piece! There are probably some good options for other project with the offcuts, too. I bet a version out of Baltic Birch would look fantastic as well. Sixty lbs. doesn’t sound too heavy imho. I also like several or the pieces in the background. Thanks for sharing.

baltic birch is next. with the ‘waste’ i plan to make a lamp or something to be included w/the piece, making it very sustainable. also going to do 1 out of acrylic, it’ll look like an icecube. also one where a few layers are the thick industrial wool felt. and one where the top is a little deeper giving it room for a pull out drawer from the front. thnx for all the comments
