70X45X30 cm
Box Joints made with A jig designed by Matthias Wandel.

I used left overs i had around from all my recent projects
I had many doubts regarding the legs design. truth is that making them took me more time than making the whole table. this is the 3rd version i made for the legs.

Glue – TB-II
Finish – Rustin Tung oil

Some pictures from the process:

-- Only by the 4th time I realized how it was suppose to be done in the first place.

Nice job Elyasaf, I see you’re making good use of that box joint jig. That’s a very sleek and attractive design.

I like it, even though I’m not a big fan of mid-century modern. The execution craftsmanship are outstanding. Great piece.

Great idea, great design, great choise of timbers – and a nice selection of books!
A matter of personal taste but i feel that the roundovers on the edges takes away a bit of the crisp look it has unfinished.
Other than that the best pieze on LJ this week. Favorited!

Nice piece. Looks like a stressful glue up though

Stripes look awesome, finger narrow joints even better. It’s realy modern design.
