the idea behind this design was lines converging and deviating. 450mm tall and 1600mm long
this mapricarpa and marine ply coffe table is bolted together with M8 stainless steel theaded rod so it can be dismantled into smaller parts for more efficient transport. the outer and main leg arcs are lamenated curves. the outer legs and top middle part a solid mac. i used a trimmer router with a bearing cutter to cut the resese for the ply inserts. all solid joints a doweled. i’ve made a steel one out of recycled boiler tube as well.

Beautiful contour lines and shape. It has a surfboard look which for me shows a flowing movement. Very nice design.

Hmmm, nice convergence in the lines. Portability and function. nice! How did you achieve such precise curves?

I have to play devil’s advocate here!.... At first glance I loved it; great lines, unique design and well balanced color. Then I saw the hardware. Is it industrial? Or Art Nouveau? Odd combination, but well done anyway!

I work with some surfers here in Southern California that would go nuts for this. Great job and a master piece for sure.

thinks for comments. In regards to CaptainAhabs post, i will be changing the bolting system so is flush with the curves. its ugly and breaks the flow of the curves at the moment.
i made male and female formers to clamp four 6mm strips together to make the big arcs

Very nice table design and innovative to say the least but I agree the hardware should be more refined and removable feet could be a option and another design element.
