Sweet! I love those keyed tenons. That wood grain is rather nice as well.

You have such a creative mind. The wood grain is wonderful.

I give up, why the opening in the middle of the table with the curved pieces bending into the hole?

No matter what, it’s a beautiful table.

I think the center hole is simply to have people go “Wow” how did they do that. A second explanation is that it could be there is a waste basket placed below the hole and this is a “Brain Session” table, where ideas get thrown out all the time.

beautiful piece Aviad.

Herb- the opening in the center in conference tables is for all the wires and cables for phones, computers, and presentation accessories (projectors/monitors/etc) so that there aren’t any cables running all over the table itself. there is usually a set of receptacles just under the table for power, telephony, computer networks, etc so the room and table stays clear of all that mess and keeps its pristine appearance.
