I’m not sure if I am more impressed with your table or in the fact that you still have your vision. Never once any safety glassed in your video. 1:34 into the video really made me squint.
Hearing protection….....yes, eye protection…....none.
Still like your table however.

This is a most beautiful table Boris. Aren’t you concerned with wood movement when you have glued the end boards in place ?
you sure have some wonderful pieces of equipment in your shop.

Thank you a1Jim !

The board is made of plywood (22 mm) covered by a layer of hardwood on each side (5 mm). End piece of wood is hardwood. Then it mays move, your are right. I hop, my larger domino mortises and the elasticity of glue is enough.

Wait an see …

I guess I missed the part where the core is plywood . I think you will be fine as far as the ends go. How did you connect the solid wood to the ply ?

The core of the board look like that. Solid wood on each edge is glued with dominos to the ply. Up and down faces are only glued.

Edge gluing : http://youtu.be/uHjSPnc51I8?t=4m1s and http://youtu.be/uHjSPnc51I8?t=5m56s
Faces gluing : http://youtu.be/uHjSPnc51I8?t=4m27s

The only reason I asked was if the solid wood was glued to the ply,the solid wood wants to move but the ply doesn’t move.

Yes, I understand, but is there a better alternative to gluing ?

I guess if I were building this I would have all of the thin pieces of solid wood(1/4 sawn) glued together and glue the center section of maybe 6-8” of it to the ply and then have the outside edgies have a tong that would go into the thick out side end and long edge pieces . This would act more like a rased panel door that allows for wood movement but still allows the solid top to move. Because you would have to leave somewhat of a gap on both side it may not have as clean a look as your table does.
Just my 2 cents
I think your a very fine craftsman Boris.

On first view it is not such complicated, but at closer look – those curves and other details just amaized me, verry nice table.

Great table. Favorted!
Crisp lines and a well thought through design. Did you design it yourself?
Like how you make fairly simple things but use adwanced medthods; the lamination of the legs for instance. Like there is more than meets the eye. Inspiring.
Great video as well. Thanks for sharing!

Yes @kaerlighedsbamsen, it’s my own design. I draw it as an ensemble with this sideboard .
Legs has the same lines, but not the same size.
