10.2 Multi Ply Coffee Table

Constructed from a single 24mm thick four by eight plywood sheet. The diagram illustrates how the 24mm four by eight sheet is divided and cut into a total of 72 pieces, (4 leg pieces / 48 short slats / 20 long slats). The cutting width of all slats including the leg pieces is 48mm minus the width of the saw blade cuts. The slats cut from the material salvaged from inside the four U shaped leg sections is cut in half. All slats are turned on edge and glued together on the veneered face, the short slats are aligned to the outer edge of the table creating a hole in the centre that equals the same volume as the four legs. The finished table is 10.2 lbs lighter than the full sheet of material.
