I love the way the ply pattern makes it even MORE of a piece of functional art! Looks cool. Going to have to remember your technique for future projects.

That is so cool. This table and the others you have made using this style are awesome. The use of a maloof joint is great and very well executed. I have just added another project to my favorites and might try this as a coffee table. What are the dimensions of the joint and how thick is the table top and second tier?

Sometimes shaping wooden objects really works. This is one of those rare occasions.

Very nice table and I really like your joinery. I’d never heard of a maloof joint before I read this. Probably have seen it before but didn’t know what I was loking at.
