I don’t understand where the circles come from…. hard to reverse engineer from the pics. It looks very cool though.

Really unique. Would love to see a set of build pics.

I think a summary of the method is: a bottomless, straight-sided, segmented bowl fitted with, and glued to, a solid core… all done on a very large scale.

Aviad, I admire the artistic vision you have… and your skilled craftsmanship that makes it work so very well in a variety of types of projects… from dreidels to tables.

Nice table as a result of hard and clever work. I think the only way to get those small cercles is each piece has to be part of spherical surface. So each vertical column ( the hight of the table) has to be part of a cercle. So it is uncomlpeted 90cm. dia spherical shape. Am I right, Aviad?

Interesting segmented turning Aviad. I’m always amazed at what can be done with plywood on the lathe, although I haven’t yet tried it out myself. Thanks for the inspiration.
