Interesting concept. Have you tried it again with an expansion adaptation?

i dont have the plans for this bench , actually i woulden build this the way i did . 8 yaers ago i wasent sure what i am doing so i I composed piece by piece with glue and Screws !!! which i thought would give it strength. the mahogony “works” and i didnt know how much then and it was quite fragile for a sitting furniture . i was Pretentious stupid to take it to a design shop in Tel Aviv and luckily it has broken beffor any one bought it. it was a lesson for me even though i am still wolking on the edge with my thin wood furnitures

Its form is beautiful Aviad, your only mistake was calling it a piece of furniture instead of a piece of sculpture

That’s a hard lesson to learn wood movement. ugh… amazing concept… that is the risk we take for pushing the limits of ourselves and our medium. Beautiful.
