This 43" tall, 46" square dining table assembles with no hardware or glue. It is incredibly sturdy.

The table is square because it promotes better community with no one placed at the head of the table and everyone equidistant, allowing for better conversation.

The table takes 2 4"X8" sheets of 18mm plywood. Most cabinet grade plywood from Home Depot is 18mm and inexpensive. The one in my home is made from high grade birch ply.

Please check out http://www.jeffreymatthias.com to see some of my other work.

Someday, I will alter the design to allow for an expanding top to accommodate 8 people.

I've added a photo of it in our home for an idea of how big it is.


There is a full diagram and cut instructions included. I will work on an assembly instruction set, but it is overall fairly intuitive.

Finish however you prefer.

This designer is on the right track
— a beautiful design that's affordable AND sustainable. I have a feeling this guy is going to start showing up in more and more places.

people should feel free to email me if they need help building one.

Oh god, this is positively gorgeous. I really love furniture that can be assembled without any special fasteners.


Wow, just wow!

There is a picture on the designers website. It looks pretty rock'en. Instead of going out an buying a bunch of tables for a hacker/maker space if you have access to a CNC machine make a bunch of these up instead.

way cool.

Thanks for positive comments. I've uploaded multiple shots. I can only assume that they are in some sort of review limbo or something. Anyhow, call around, most big cities have places where you can pay for CNC time by the hour. I designed this so that once it's cut, there are no special tools needed.

I'm refining a bar height chair to go with it. If people respond positively to this on this site, I'll post it.
