final year project for my uni ,it’s a coffee table with perspex (acrylic) top that I cut myself , glass would cost me 180£ ) made it very fast…most of the time spent gluing sycamore veneer stripes .I used knock down fittings so it can be disassembled ,but not flat packed….

nice work alex, i love the style and design of this piece. the veneer work in the center of the top and bottom are really sharp. any thought to applying some kind of edge banding to the sides of the curved pieces to cover the plywood layers?

sick job on this though, really nice design and execution!

Well done. Very unique piece. Lets see 3 curved uprights for 6 sides makes a good coffee table. Brilliant!
Thx for sharing.
